Protein Identifications (IMAGE) Max Planck Institute of Geoanthropology Caption This is a summary of dietary-derived protein identifications. The left graph summarizes proteins extracted from the sherd's interior wall and the right graph summarizes proteins extracted from calcified deposits on the inner wall. Filled icons represent protein assignments to the genus or species level, while transparent icons represent identifications to higher taxonomies (subfamily, family). In samples CW20 and CW27, blood protein was identified to the taxonomic level of ruminant animals, which includes sheep and goats. In sample CW24, milk protein could be assigned to either bovine or sheep families. Credit Jessica Hendy; Hendy et al. 2018.
