Küchelmann, Hans Christian (2012): Die Haussäugetiere der phönizischen Fundstelle Íle de Mogador, Provinz Essaouira, Marokko, Grabungen 2007 – 2008, Bericht für das Deutsche Archäologische Institut Madrid, Bremen
[The domestic Mammals of the Phoenician Site Íle de Mogador, Province Essaouira, Morocco, excavations 2007 – 2008]
report submitted to the German Archaeological Institute Madrid
A total of over 63,000 animal remains were recovered during excavations in 2007 and 2008 on the Île de Mogador off the south coast of Morocco. More than two thirds of the material is butchering waste and table scraps from a Phoenician factory that operated between the 7th-5th century BC. Approximately 6% of the finds date to the 1st-3rd century AD, a period in which the Romans had Île de Mogador well in hand. Stratification was not possible for around 15% of the material. This report presents the analysis of the ca. 13,000 remains of domestic mammals.
