About this book

This volume presents the proceedings of the 10th international meeting of the working group "Archaeozoology of South-Western Asia and Adjacent Areas" (ASWA X). The meeting took place at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (Brussels, Belgium) from June 28 to June 30, 2011. The 20 contributions presented here deal with a wide range of topics related to the human-animal interactions and gather the results of research that has been conducted in Anatolia and the Levant, more eastern regions (Armenia and Azerbaijan), northern Africa (Egypt and Sudan) and Oman. Research questions include issues such as the exploitation of animal resources, changing animal use, herding practices, social differences and/or identities, trade, animal burials and sacrifices, and cover periods ranging from the PPNB up to the Early Islamic period.
