A Preliminary Report on the Animal Fauna at Nessana
by Dr. Joel D. Klenck.

An analysis of faunal remains from archaeological contexts at Nessana, dating to Roman, Byzantine, and Early Arab periods (100 B.C. to A.D. 850), indicates the persistence of dietary patterns, particularly the consumption of domesticated pig (Sus scrofa), despite the impact of early Islamic conquests and a climatic transition to a more arid environment.
