EVIDENCE FROM INSECT REMAINS AND PARASITE EGGS FROM THE OLD GRAPES LANE B SITE, THE LANES, CARLISLE
Author(s): J Carrott, M Dainton, I Kemenes, H Kenward
Subsamples from eight contexts of Roman date from the Old Grapes Lane site, Carlisle, were analysed for insect remains and eggs of intestinal parasitic nematodes. Insects from several of the samples gave evidence for material resembling stable manure. Some well fills gave groups of rather mixed nature, perhaps representing dumps. One surface deposit was very rich in grain pests, and appears to have incorporated spoiled grain, perhaps animal feed. No more than traces of parasite eggs were recorded.
