From the Introduction:
This study is aimed at the molecular characterisation oft he organic residues preserved in an assemblage of ceramic vessels originating from an indigenous settlement dating from the Iron Age and Roman period at Uitgeest – Groot Dorregeest in the Netherlands in order to better infer the way the vessels were originally used.
