The Archaeology of Animal Bones offers a lucid and accessible introduction to the principles and methods involved in the study of this vital category of archaeological material and provides an introduction for archaeologists seeking to understand how bones can shed light on the relationship between humans and animals." "The Archaeology of Animal Bones supplies in a single volume a much-needed critical review of this quickly developing field of research. It will appeal strongly to all those involved in archaeology and to anyone intrigued by the re-creation of long-lost worlds from the most insignificant-seeming fragments."--Jacket." ;
