Abstract

This chapter is a summary of the findings presented in a recent doctoral dissertation on the faunal remains from VOC sites at the Cape (Heinrich 2010). It starts with a review of the pre–colonial faunal record at the Cape, as well as the stock management and foodways patterns both there and in Europe, and is followed by analyses of faunal remains from five VOC sites (Figure 3.1). Figure 3.1 Map of the Cape, showing sites mentioned in this chapter.
