The effects of the 1976 drought on chalk grassland in Sussex, England, by Brian Hopkins, published July 1978 in Biological Conservation (vol. 14, no. 1, article, pp.1-12, ISSN: 00063207)   View Online
Abstract:
The exceptionally severe drought during the spring and summer of 1976 resulted in almost 40% bare ground compared with c . 5% in normal summers. The high rainfall of September caused considerable regrowth and decreased bare ground to almost its normal autumnal value. Many species had significantly lower covers in 1976 than in normal summers. Many of these and some others significantly increased their cover during the wet autumn. It is considered that unpredictable drought stress is an important factor of chalk grassland and causes large but temporary fluctuations in species abundance and floristic composition.

The role of animals in archaeology has traditionally been thought of from an economic perspective, with animal bone reports highlighting 'calories consumed' or 'yields produced'. More recently, the social importance of animals, as in ritual practices, ethnic values or symbolically in art, have been emphasised.

New animals, new landscapes and new world views: the Iron Age to Roman transition at Fishbourne, by Martyn Allen and Naomi Sykes, published 2011 in Sussex Archæological Collections (vol. 149, article, pp.7-24) accessible at: W.S.R.O.

Abstract:
Anthropologists and cultural geographers have long accepted that animals play an important role in the creation of human cultures. However, such beliefs are yet to be embraced by archaeologists, who seldom give zoo archaeological data much consideration beyond the occasional economic or environmental reconstruction. In an attempt to highlight animal remains as a source of cultural information, this paper examines the evidence for the changing relationship between people and wild animals in Iron Age and Roman southern England. Special attention is given to 'exotic' species - in particular fallow deer, domestic fowl and the hare - whose management increased around AD 43. In Iron Age Britain the concept of wild game reserves was seemingly absent, but the post-Conquest appearance of new landscape features such as vivaria, leporaria and piscinae indicates a change in worldview from a situation where people seemingly negotiated with the 'wilderness' and 'wild things' to one where people felt they had the right or the responsibility to bring them to order. Using Fishbourne Roman Palace as a case study, we argue that wild and exotic animals represented far more than gastronomic treats or symbols of Roman identity, instead influencing the way in which people engaged with, traversed and experienced their surroundings.
