What's Cookin', Feb 16, 1017?
Zooarchaeology is a relatively new field of study based on analysis of animal remains found at archaeology sites with the goal of discovering how humans and animals interacted in the past. These remains provide information about the people, their culture, and their environment at various periods of occupation. Zooarchaeological studies begin with the identification and quantification of faunal remains to place the site in context of time, zoology and biology, climate and environment with patterns of cultural choice. By comparing these observations between local sites, Rolland and her colleagues have learned the range of faunal selections favored by the St. Johns II (A.D. 900-1300) people in the estuaries of Northeast Florida.
