Site location does not bias the results as a whole. Only six coastal assemblages are recorded overall, and these are spread from the seventh and eighth to the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries (see appendix 1). 004). However, it is inland sites that are under-represented prior to the eleventh century, not vice versa. Thus this pattern strengthens the observation that non-marine species were preferred prior to the end of the first millennium AD. The chronological patterning evident in the CA is largely dependent on the abundance of herring and gadids.

Locker (unpublished). Hamilton-Dyer (2001). Bourdillon (1993). 001). For cod-like fishes, different species show slightly different chronological patterns. Cod itself was virtually unexploited prior to the end of the first millennium AD. 001), after which its proportion of the total declined as it was joined by related species such as haddock, ling, saithe and hake (figure 3c). 38 As the marine species became more important, the proportion of freshwater taxa in the bone assemblages declined (figure 3d).

They aimed, in fact, at forbidding direct trade with Iceland without passing through Bergen. Competition for the Bergen stockfish market increased in the sixteenth century as Icelandic stockfish became more attractive with the introduction of the new technology of softening dried cod, as discussed earlier. Moreover, next to Iceland, Trondheim became another alternative centre for direct trade in stockfish coming from northern Norway. Traders from Holland and Bergen were active in this trade. Wubs found no evidence that Bergen felt any competition from the Newfoundland cod fishery, or from the Dutch cod fishery developing on the Doggersbank in the North Sea.
