The Archaeozoological Collection
The Archaeozoological Collection is mainly researching pre- and protohistory of domestic animals and stock-farming. It deals among others with the history of domestication and of wildlife during the last 10 millenia. Therefore it is an institution involving several disciplines, such as zoology, the science of domestic animals, palaeontology and, above all, pre- and protohistory. The bulk of investigations is carried out on behalf of archaeological institutions. Essential conclusions of archaeological research rely on natural sciences, archaeozoological results being among them.
