This course introduces students to the methods, techniques and interpretative approaches involved in studying animal bone remains from archaeological sites, with the aim of exploring the role of animals in past societies.

Students will be introduced to major methodologies of the subject and to recurring themes in world zooarchaeology; case-studies from diverse areas and time periods will be used. They will gain limited practical experience of identification and analysis of vertebrate assemblages.

The course aims to link with other archaeology courses which have a regional / period focus.
