Oxford Handbook of Zooarchaeology - Oxford University Press
Umberto Albarella, Mauro Rizzetto, Hannah Russ, Kim Vickers and Sarah Viner-Daniels have edited the Oxford Handbook of Zooarchaeology to be published by Oxford University Press. This covers world zooarchaeology with 48 chapters from across the globe. The book will be published in 2016.
The volume is wide-ranging but has a number of interconnected aims:
• To provide zooarchaeologists with the opportunity to reflect on the state of their own discipline by consulting a single source that will provide comprehensive – though inevitably not completely exhaustive – coverage of its approaches, methods, research questions and international trends and interests.
• To provide archaeologists, anthropologists, researchers and enthusiasts of numerous related disciplines with a snapshot of the potential of zooarchaeology to address research questions that can be of interest beyond the boundaries of any single discipline.
• To provide a compact reference tool regarding zooarchaeological research activities in different parts of the world, in different periods and on different themes.
• To provide a valuable and unique bibliographic tool for higher education teaching in many countries.
