A sheep’s skull

This domestic sheep’s skull is an example of the importance that sheep and goats had in the livestock at Ca n’Oliver, as well as evidence of the importance of stock-raising as a complementary activity to agriculture. Sheep were exploited for their wool, to make cloth, for their milk to make cheese, and fortheir meat. Pigs, cows, chickens and, to a lesser extent horses, were also reared. Hunting, on the other hand, was not a very widespread activity.
