Social access and dispersal of condiments in North-West Europe from the Roman to the medieval period


, : Social access and dispersal of condiments in North-West Europe from the Roman to the medieval period. Vegetation History and Archaeobotany 17(1 Supplement): 201-209

The introduction and dispersal histories of eight common condiments in North-West Europe are explored: Apium graveolens (celery), Anethum graveolens (dill), Coriandrum sativum (coriander), Brassica nigra (black mustard), Foeniculum vulgare (fennel), Satureja hortensis (summer savory), Carum carvi (caraway) and Petroselinum crispum (parsley). The presence of these condiments in archaeobotanical reports from the study area was recorded, together with information on chronological phase, type of site, social status and mode of preservation. Analysis of the data suggests the presence of very distinct patterns of dispersal that highlight the socio-cultural significance of the food plants in question.

The phytohaemagglutinin (PHA) skin test response, used to assess cell-mediated immunity, is known to vary with many social and energetic factors, but the effects of age have received little attention. We found that the PHA response of immature bir...
