This paper presents the initial results of faunal analysis conducted on material from the Visegrád-Lower Castle site. This collection is a 16–17th century deposit from the town of Visegrád, located on the Danube and within the hotly contested border of the Hapsburg and Ottoman Empires. It seeks to address the cultural and political context of the site in terms of Ottoman military expansion and social history and Pre-Ottoman Hungarian history. The Lower Castle assemblage consists of material from several refuse pits and excavation units (referred to the in the documents as ‘squares’) and one house-floor. The material was identified to species and weighed and measurements taken when possible. The collection consisted primarily of cattle (Bos taurus) and sheep/goat (Caprinae). One human vertebra was recovered from a house-floor context.
