Summary

The changes that occurred in the Danish Mesolithic/Neolithic transition are examined via the seasonality and collecting patterns found in the common cockles (Cerastoderma edule (L)) from two Danish kitchen midden sites, Norsminde and Krabbesholm. Three main data sets were used to produce a picture of cockle variability through time. The seasonality results were then compared to oyster seasonality research from the two sites (Milner 2002; Milner and Laurie in press).
