This is a second call and reminder to those interested in speaking on the role
of hunting in post-domestication societies. So far we have a number of
speakers, and a outline list is presented below - however we could use a couple
more bodies - anyone want to speak on wild birds? Other mammals? Has anybody
made detailed comparisions with ethnographic accounts of hunting etc. Aurochs,
why do they appear on sites, just a lot of meat, or something more? I could
suggest more things I want to know about but shall await more paper offers for
Examples of papers offered and provisional titles.
