Vesna Dimitrijevic. UDC "" These include the bones of mammals, birds, tortoises, fish, in addition to mollusc shells.

The most important are remains of mammals, among which domestic animals slightly outnumber game. Five species of domestic animal are present: dog, and four economically important species — cattle, pigs, sheep and goats. Cattle bones preponderate within domestic animals, but pig remains are also numerous.

Red deer, wild boar and roe deer are the most frequently hunted prey. Birds were rarely hunted, but fishing was a regular activity. Occasionally, tortoises and river clams were collected as an additional food supply. Key words. This issue.

The colour of the bones is predominantly grey or analyses have been carried out on rather a small number dark grey, though many fragments show staining related of them. Sites differ by size, duration of occupation, ber of specimens, there are calcified, carbonized, burned and social and economic status.

Con- siderable size differences between the domestic and wild forms have also been established at other Neolithic sites in Serbia. The juvenile animal remains and their identification, meanwhile, are key for understanding the percentage distribution of the two species.

Were we to draw conclusions only on the basis of adult animals, it would seem that wild pigs were more numerous for example, according to the number of the measured specimens of the third lower molar Fig.

However, if the first lower molar, which erupts early, is observed we find the opposite situation Fig. Therefore, it is assumed that the breeding of the domestic pig was direc- ted at the slaughtering of young animals, while a small number of adults were retained for reproduction.

With regard to the hunting of wild pig, it seems that mostly adult, mature animals were hunted. Sus sp. Among 45 pig lower jaws that contained teeth, and could be attributed an Sl.

Morphological features and skeleton size correspond The age distribution based on mandibles with D4 or to a clearly domesticated form of small to medium size. P4 alveoli preserved indicates that less than one quarter of sheep attained fully grown age. This indicates that orientation towards exploitation of milk and wool is 32 Becker , At the 34 According to parameters given by Teichert There are no mandibles with only milk 37 See tibia, metatarsal and astragalus measurements in Table 5.

On the basis of butchering traces on dog bones, it seems that dog meat was occasionally consumed. Cuts on dog bones are recognized as butchering marks on vertebrae, for example on the transverse process of a lumbar vertebra found with two other articulated lum- bar vertebrae fig.

One of the vertebrae bears traces of fire on the broken ends of the transverse processes which also points to possible roasting of pieces of dog meat. The percentage of dog bones with various traces of fire, from completely calcined to partly burned spe- cimens, is rather high at
