About 1,700 years ago, Iron Age cooks of the North Sea on the Scottish coast prepared a great feast of meat. According to archaeologists, the guests enjoyed a magnificent view while eating sheep, pigs, and otters, and received banquet gifts such as metal rings and brooches.

The researchers found this out after finding the trash containing 11,000 animal bones remaining after the feast. It also reached metalworking equipment from the same time zone.

Martin Carruthers, archeology lecturer at Orkney College in Highlands and Islands University in Scotland, says: "The banquet that leaves animal bones behind so soon as two findings looks like a feast for this metalworking revolution."
