Zooarchaeology is the study of animal remains in archaeological contexts. Animals can tell us many things about the past – what people hunted or domesticated; the environment of the time, what people ate, and people’s relationship with animals. Archaeological remains can come in the form of bones or shell, or tools and structures used in these interactions with animals.
