Zooarchaeology

Zooarchaeology is the study of animal remains from archaeological sites, to understand all aspects of past human-animal interaction.  Zooarchaeological research focuses on reconstructing past subsistence activities and the procurement of animal foods; past hunting and herding practices; animal domestications; animal remains as palaeoenvironmental indicators; and the role of animals in societies beyond serving as food. The Institute of Archaeology has excellent comparative collections (covering mammals from Europe and Asia) and laboratory facilities for zooarchaeological research and teaching, and has had a historical research strength in this discipline.
