Animal remains from two sites provide an opportunity to examine the colonial diet in French and Spanish occupations of New Orleans between 1715 and 1800. Faunal assemblages from Madame John's Legacy (16OR51), an inn/tavern site in the city, and St. Augustine (16OR148), a plantation near the city, allow the authors to address how differences related to class, ethnicity, and urban–rural location are reflected in the food that was consumed. In addition, evidence for distinctions between colonial and Creole diets is explored.
