Zooarchaeology is the study of animal skeletal remains found at a given archaeological dig site. This brief presentation is designed to introduce the beginner archaeologist to the science of faunal analysis. Through this presentation the viewers will become familiar with the practical reasons for faunal analysis, some of the terminology used by biological archaeologists, the steps used to identify animal bone, a brief overview of stable isotope analyses and how it plays a major roll in today's archaeology, as well as see two site examples of places where zooarchaeology is being utilized today.
