Faunal remains represent a very important component of archaeological exploration. This volume of the Hesban series presents a comprehensive survey of zooarchaeological investigation. This survey includes an analysis of different types of bones from wild and domesticated mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians. The volume presents interpretive conclusions which highlight the predominant animals, farming, food system cycles, and other important aspects of Hesban’s zooarchaeology. Hesban 13 contains 114 figures, 75 plates, and 134 tables.
