Zooarchaeology is the study of animal remains from archaeological sites. The remains primarily consist of the hard parts of the body such as bones, teeth and shells. Such remains represent the food refuse of ancient populations as well as the use of animals transportation, decoration, or pets. Zooarchaeology helps complete our picture of the way of life of ancient people and the kind of environments they inhabited.
