Most archaeological sites contain remains of animals.
The identity and condition of these animals, represented by fragments of their skeletons or shells can provide invaluable information about past economies and the impact of humans on the environment in which they lived.
This reference book for archaeology students and professionals, both in the field and the laboratory, is designed to help in the identification and analysis of animal bones, teeth, and other hard tissues, such as mollusk shells.
Global in scope, the examples range from the Pleistocene to the nineteenth century..
