Integrating Terrestrial and Aquatic Archaeozoological Studies: Venice and the northern Adriatic lagoons between Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages

Project description

Human-animal-environment relationships of old in the north-western Adriatic

A look at the animal remains at archaeological sites provides a window on the complex, changing relationships between humans, other animals, and the environment. Current archaeozoological analyses of Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages in the north-western Adriatic are restricted to the sites of evaluation and large-scale reviews do not include the specific environmental contexts. With the support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the InTer AquAS project will investigate human-animal-environment relationships, including both terrestrial and aquatic animals, at the Roman-early medieval transition along the north-western Adriatic coast. Chronological and spatial comparisons together with biometrical and stable isotope analyses will fill the missing link in large-scale and methodologically targeted faunal analyses.
