[FIrst paragraph] Structural remains provide evidence for the location of various activities associated with food – food storage, food processing and food consumption. For many archaeological sites such remains consist of only the footings of the walls, or their imprint in the soil, indicating the ground plans of these buildings. Exceptions are sites which have experienced a catastrophic destruction, burying and preserving their buildings sometimes to roof level. Further exceptions are also those buildings which continue to be used, even to the present day, but which provide evidence for former uses.
