Incremental Growth of the European Oyster Ostrea Edulis: Seasonality Information from Danish Kitchenmiddensby Nicky Milner

This in turn increases our understanding of the subsistence patterns of European hunter-gatherers. Much of the study examines the results of a modern control experiment. Includes an index of sites.
