Archaeologists in York say sheep from the 17th century Midlands and Yorkshire were used to create ancient parchments, calling wool “the oil of times gone by” after extracting DNA evidence from millions of archive papers.Tracing 700 years of British agriculture through protein from tiny samples of parchment, a team from the University of York and Trinity College Dublin established the types of animals used in each process, identifying animals from northern Britain – where black-faced breeds such as Swaledale, Rough Fell and Scottish Blackface are now common – and more southerly climes, where livestock became increasingly prevalent during the 18th century.“We believe the two specimens derive from an unimproved northern hill-sheep typical in Yorkshire in the 17th century and from a sheep derived from the ‘improved’ flocks, such as those bred in the Midlands by Robert Bakewell, which were spreading through England in the 18th century,” says Professor Matthew Collins, a York archaeologist, calling parchments an “amazing” and “breathtaking” resource.“There are millions stored away in libraries, archives, solicitors’ offices and private hands.“They can give us significant data about the source animal and using them we can learn an enormous amount about the development of agriculture in the British Isles.“We want to understand the history of agriculture in these islands over the last 1,000 years.”Paleographic dating on parchments, which tend to be well-preserved as the major medium for legal documents in the age before typewriters, is easier and cheaper than the radiocarbon techniques required to date excavated bone remains.
