Chapter Summary

This chapter summarises the evidence of plant remains discovered in buildings at the Late Roman site at Dichin, Bulgaria, with a focus on the context and location in which they were discovered. At the outset of the excavations of the Late Roman site at Dichin, Bulgaria, a programme of routine sampling for plant remains was initiated. It became clear from the finds and architectural observation that many of the buildings or rooms on the site were used for storing crops. This is especially the case in Area E, which has produced fully processed crops from 5 of the buildings in the area. Further analysis of the spatial distribution of the crops and the mixing evident in some areas may reveal more details of how and by what means the crops were stored.

Keywords: Bulgaria; crops; Dichin; Late Roman site
