Abstract

Book Review This book emerged from the need to learn more about present life, in order to interpret archaeological evidence and to understand life in the past. Indeed, the use of modern analogues for archaeological interpretation applies to ethnoarchaeology in general, but the present volume is focused on human-animal relationships in particular, hence its title "Ethnozooarchaeology". Although this term is not well established at all, zooarchaeologists, archaeozoologists, or however they wish to be called, have widely used modern parallels to interpret faunal data collected from archaeological sites. For example, an entire book "Tracking down the past. Ethnohistory meets archaeozoology", edited by GRupe et al. (2009) and focusing mainly on Africa, appeared two years ago. Most of the chapters in the new book of Umberto Albarella and Angela Trentacoste are the written version of oral presentations held at a session during the 10th conference of the International Council of Archaeozoology (ICAZ) in Mexico City in August 2006. All papers were peer reviewed before publication. Umberto Albarella, Senior Lecturer in Zooarchaeology at the University of Sheffield, has a long and impressive record.
