Plant food from the Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age hilltop site Kush Kaya, Eastern Rhodope Mountains, Bulgaria: insights on tha cooking practices
2018 (English)In: Social dimensions of food in the Prehistoric Balkans / [ed] Maria Ivanova, Bogdan Athanassov, Vanya Petrova, Desislava Takorova and Philipp W. Stockhammer, Oxbow Books, 2018, p. 263-277Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Excavations at the hilltop site of Kush Kaya, situated in the Eastern Rhodope mountains, have provided rich and diverse information on settlement structures in the region during the Late Bronze and Early Iron Age. Moreover, abundant information on the subsistence economy and the food consumed by the inhabitants of the settlement has been obtained from finds uncovered in the cultural layers of Kush Kaya. The remains of a possible millet-barley porridge, found in situ in one of the Late Bronze Age dwellings, are of special interest. Finds of this kind are quite rarely preserved and recovered during excavations, and are very valuable, as they represent direct evidence on food preparation practices. In addition, the complete archaeobotanical evidence collected from the site will be discussed. The resulting synthesised evidence will be useful for drawing a picture of the plant-based economy and the food of Ancient Thrace from the second half of the 2nd millennium to the beginning of the 1st millennium BC. Takorova, Desislava.
