Recent excavations at the Burcht and Gorterstraat sites in early medieval Antwerp have produced rich, carefully collected faunal assemblages that provide new information on the economic foundations of early medieval Antwerp. Working closely with colleagues who study the microstratigraphy and insect assemblages from these sites, we have also worked to reconstruct the environment of 8th-11th-century Antwerp. This presentation will detail the zooarchaeological data from early medieval Antwerp and compare them to other early medieval sites in Northwest Europe.
