Thank you for having continuously developed Zooarch in this spirit for all those years. I could not have phrased the aims better myself.
Best wishes, Laszlo
Please don't feel a need to apologise for sharing publications!I, and many others, think sharing such information is one of the important functions of all archaeology discussion groups.
Congratulations on the publications - I look forward to having a look at them!

Subject: [ZOOARCH] new books
Dear all,I don’t normally like to do anything that might be considered self-promotional or as blowing my own trumpet but I have recently been involved in editing two books that may be of interest to members of this list. Please forgive me on this occasion.The first book deals with ethnozooarchaeology and contains several papers detailing case studies of human-animal interactions (and the variety of forms that they may take) around the world today and in the past. It also features discursive papers, exploring where ethnozooarchaeology lies within the wider discipline, why it’s valuable and where it might take us. People with Animals: Perspectives & Studies in Ethnozooarchaeology has been published by Oxbow and a full list of the papers it contains can be found on their website: http://www.oxbowbooks.com/oxbow/people-with-animals.htmlThe second book explores urban life in medieval Europe through the study of artefacts and environmental remains. This is not a specifically zooarchaeology book but will probably still be of interest to members of this list researching the period and does contain some explicitly zooarchaeology papers – by Pam Crabtree and Claudia Minniti –alongside those considering other strands of evidence. Objects, Environment, and Everyday Life in Medieval Europe has been published by Brepols and, again, a full list of the papers it contains can be found on their website: http://www.brepols.net/Pages/ShowProduct.aspx?prod_id=IS-9782503555034-1My thanks go to all the paper authors, in both books, who have helped to make them possible.Best regards,Lee G.
