The authoress insists that animal remains from Busówno stronghold demonstrate a certain distinction while compared to materials found at other fortified sites in eastern Poland. Sites such as Czersk, Sasiadka, or Tykocin represented an economy model focused on cattle meat consumption and more developed hunting. At all sites horse bones were more frequent, probably of animals hunted for their meat. It seems that a certain economic model in eastern Polish fortified sites may appear including frequent hunting for horses and other large animals. Besides, mostly beef was consumed, followed by pork, and more seldom, lamb. Busówno site was much more of rural life style with poorly developed hunting resulting in lower consumption of horse meat. However beef dominates, it is just followed by pork. Lamb frequency was significant, especially in stage II.
