This class introduces archaeological faunal analysis or “zooarchaeology”. By the end of the 5-week class, you are familiar with various approaches to the analysis of faunal remains as well as how to identify and evaluate the faunal remains.
This course covers the theories and methods for studying animal skeletal remains with particular attention paid to the identification and quantification of zooarchaeological material.
Animal remains can be used to inform us about a variety of issues in the study of societies, such as: environment, seasonality, subsistence, hunting practices, political and social organization, settlement patterns, and resource-use.
