The votes are already pouring in.
I can report that Binford's Nunamiut Ethnoarchaeology has taken an early lead, with Payne's 1973 kill-off patterns following in second place.
Did we peak in the 70/80s or do we only recognise brilliance with hindsight?
I'll throw in Outram et al.s 2009 paper on horse domestication - genius!
Keep them coming and I'll collate them and report back.

Subject: [ZOOARCH] An opportunity for self-congratulation
I'm contemplating our profession and I would like to canvass opinion...
What articles, paper etc spring to your mind as examples that show zooarchaeologists to be at the forefront of mainstream archaeological research, rather than acting as supporting 'specialists'?
I suppose I'm asking for examples, from anywhere in the world and relating to any period, of papers/articles that make you feel proud to be a zooarchaeologist.
The only rule to my query is that you can not vote for yourself - it goes without saying that we are, of course, all doing great things!
I'll kick-off by suggesting Legge and Rowley-Conwy's (1988) Star Carr Revisited.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks is advance,
