Deer and People : New Approaches on Ancient and Modern Bones

[Congrès, colloques, réunions]

du 8 au 11 Septembre 2011
Riseholme Park Campus - University of Lincoln

Une session proposée par Dorothée Drücker et Anne Bridault dans le cadre de la conférence internationale "Deer and People – Past, Present and Future"

"When investigating human-deer relationship over time, socio-economic and environmental issues are strongly connected. A renewed development of questions related to deer ecology, biogeography, phylogenetic and anatomical evolution significantly contributes to enrich our approach of past societies and to elaborate scenarii for the future.
New techniques or new methodological trackers have been developped to address aspects as diverse as the role of deer in human subsistence (hunting, breeding, herding), tool industry, craft production and mythology, as well as the impact of environmental change on deer ethology (habitat, diet, distribution, population structure). In this session, we would like to focus on the skeleton remains (bone, tooth, antler) from ancient and modern deer in Europe and the Mediterranean Basin as a support of such information. We thus invite contributions which offer applications of approaches such as zooarchaeological techniques (osteometry, morphometry, butchery marks, dental microwear, skeletochronology) and biogeochemical analysis (stable isotopes, trace elements, dating methods) in ancient and modern context."
