    `The book is excellent and essential reading for anyone connected with archaeology, be they students, laymen, or experienced excavators and specialists' - Journal of Archaeological Science `Simon Davis has produced an excellent account of the more intriguing investigations carried out on animal remains from archaeological sites/5(7). After any natural disasters, like Hurricanes Katrina and Rita (), that involve loss of life, human and animal remains must be removed from the site and transferred to an appropriate location. Human remains are recovered from the disaster site and transferred to an approved facility that provides mortuary services.

The goal of this study was to identify the animal remains (vertebrate and invertebrate) present in six samples recovered from two excavation units from the Lake Monroe Outlet Midden site.

In so doing, we calculate the relative abundance of the identified animals, assess their state of preservation, and estimate the adequacy of the sample. Animal fighting is more or less frowned upon today, but we can find much archaeological (and textual) evidence of the cultural and ritual importance of animal combat in antiquity.

Evidence for dog fighting can be seen amongst Etruscan tomb art and Greek vases (Kalof and Taylor, ). Animal Remains from Nagarjunakonda Archaeological Site Andhra Pradesh and Their Relevance to the.

Nagarjunakonda, archaeological site in western Andhra Pradesh state, southern India, consisting of an island in Nagarjuna Sagar, a reservoir created by damming the Krishna River there.

With reburial and repatriation very much a current focus of debate, this new handbook presents a hugely useful and stimulating overview of just how much we can learn from the study of human remains.

The book kicks off with a balanced summary of the legal framework and ethical concerns regarding the excavation and display of human remains, which emphasises public interest in skeletal remains. Nagarjunakonda (IAST: Nāgārjunikoṇḍa, meaning Nagarjuna Hill) is a historical town, now an island located near Nagarjuna Sagar in Guntur district of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, near the state border with Telangana.

In growing numbers, archeologists are specializing in the analysis of excavated animal bones as clues to the environment and behavior of ancient peoples. This pathbreaking work provides a detailed discussion of the outstanding issues and methods of bone studies that will interest zooarcheologists as well as paleontologists who focus on reconstructing ecologies from bones.

Ever since the discovery of fossil remains of extinct animals associated with flint implements, bones and other animal remains have been providing invaluable information to the archaeologist.

In the last 20 years many archaeologists and zoologists have taken to studying such "archaeofaunal" remains, and the science of "zoo-archaeology" has come into being. For example, the remains of three dogs found buried together at the Koster site in Illinois (dated to ca.

8, BP) are the oldest known deliberate dog burials in North America (Morey and Wiant ) and some of the oldest known dog remains on the continent. There have been at least eleven equally-old dog interments recovered f rom the Jiahu siteFile Size: 1MB.
