What did the people in ancient Ashkelon eat?

Dr. Deirdre Fulton, one of Ashkelon's zooarchaeologists, is here to tell you about what people in ancient Ashkelon used to eat. 

Question of the day: 

Does where you live determine what foods you eat? In America we are very lucky because food is shipped from all over the world when it is not in season, but do all countries have this same option?

Junior Archaeologist Assignment:

Look in your fridge and research where your fruits, vegetables, and meats came from. Many of them have where they are from on their stickers and are grown in warmer climates. Compare these fruits, vegetables, and livestock to what is grown in your area-how do they compare?
