Land snail is the common name for terrestrial gastropod mollusks that have shells (those without shells are known as slugs). However, it is not always easy to say which species are terrestrial, because some are more or less amphibious between land and fresh water, and others are relatively amphibious between land and salt water.

In most archaeological situations, however, shells are found as part of a discard accumulation, and these have occasionally been examined microscopically. The deposits record the change from hunter‐gatherers to food producers, and include shells and shell fragments from Ostriche, land snails, and marine molluscs, some of which were burnt.
