Remains of Roman rabbit dinner unearthed in Norfolk

Thu Apr 14, 6:18 AM ET


LONDON (AFP) - Archaeologists in Norfolk believe they have unearthed the remains of a 2,000-year-old rabbit dinner.
Norfolk county council's archaeological unit said the bones -- found at an early Roman settlement in Lynford, Norfolk -- probably belonged a Spanish rabbit common in Roman times.
"The bones themselves had been butchered. Possibly the rabbit was to be eaten by a Roman, and then buried on the site," said unit manager Jane Bowen on Wednesday.
"We believe we have convincing evidence that these rabbit remains could be the earliest known in Britain."
She added: "We know the rabbit remains are from the early Roman period because pieces of pottery found within the pit date from the first century and the site was undisturbed."
It is thought that rabbits were introduced to Britain following the Roman invasion in the year 43 AD.
The remains are to be examined by staff at the Natural History Museum in London
