Animals Make identities. The Social Bioarchaeology of Late Mesolithic and Early Neolithic Cemeteries in North-East Europe

Project description

The role of animals in Mesolithic times

What was the role of animals in human life in north-east Europe during the late Mesolithic and early Neolithic times? How did humans include the animals of their environment in their social life? These questions will be tackled by the EU-funded AMI project. It will study the relationship between animals and humans by combining the latest developments in bioarchaeological science and the current understanding of human identity formation. The research will analyse and compare biodata from animals and humans, animal-derived artefacts, intra-site spatial analyses, and data already published on cemeteries and ethnographic studies about hunter-gatherers from eight sites in north-east Europe.
