Hunting and gathering fishing and fowling

Even in these farming lands wild plants, berries, nuts, seeds, fruit, herbs and fungi would have been collected for food, drink, flavourings and medicines, although these are notoriously difficult to detect archaeologically. The Hebridean wheelhouses give some indication of the variety of birds and fish that would have been exploited by coastal communities throughout Scotland. Cnip and Sollas produced the remains of numerous sea-birds the shag, great auk (now extinct), guillemot, puffin, gannet, migratory goose and diver.They also yielded fish hake, saithe, cod and ballan wrasse, some species requiring deep-sea fishing. Shellfish, too, were a staple food, and were probably also used as bait. In these island communities marine mammals, such as seals, were hunted, while stranded whales provided occasional but welcome windfalls, yielding meat, oil and bones for tools and fuel.

Caoiite describes the Tuatha De Danann to St. Patrick as beings who are unfading, and whose duration is perennial in contrast with himself or men 2 or they are fairies or sprites with corporeal forms, endowed with immortality. Yet immortality is said to have been given them by Manannan through their drinking Goibniu's immortal beer, so that no disease nor sickness ever attacks them, nor decay nor old age comes upon them. 3 The daughter of Bodb Dearg was asked by St. Patrick what it was which maintained the gods in form and comeliness, and her answer was, All such of us as partook of Goibniu's banquet, nor pain nor...
