    Book details

Zooarchaeology is a detailed reference manual for students and professional archaeologists interested in identifying and analysing animal remains from archaeological sites. Drawing on material from all over the world, and covering a time span from the Pleistocene to the nineteenth century AD, the emphasis is on animals whose remains inform us about many aspects of the relationships between humans and their natural and social environments, especially site formation processes, subsistence strategies, and paleoenvironments. The authors discuss suitable methods and theories for all vertebrate classes and molluscs, and include hypothetical examples to demonstrate these. There are extensive references and illustrations to help in the process of identification.

'The volume is well structured, and begins with an absorbing overview of the development of zooarchaeology … The book gives a discursive introduction, with sufficient substance to hold the attention of those with some background knowledge, whilst remaining accessible to general readers.' Antiquity'Zooarchaeology by Reitz and Wing is the most recent addition to the Cambridge Manuals in Archaeology series. It continues the tradition of providing outstanding reference books to a diverse international community of archaeological researchers by surveying current archaeological techniques and methods …'.
