What did they eat at the crannogs in Scotland?
We have found traces of spelt and emmer wheat on site and barley. Also, a wide range of nuts and berries, including cloudberry, raspberry, strawberry, brambles, sloes and wild cherries. Hazelnuts are in great abundance. Wild carrots, wild cabbages, wild garlic and thyme, and meat from domestic animals such as sheep and cow. Butter and cheese. So far no fishbones have been found, but we have net weights.
