Dear Umberto,

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

I'd like to echo the sentiment of Pam's message - as long as it is relevant to the list, please always feel free to share news about books, conferences, seminars, events, fieldwork, findings, ideas, data, courses etc.
Zooarch has for 16 years been run on the premises that we don't compete with each other - we help each other, and sharing information is part of this process
all the best

Dear Lee

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!

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:
The 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:
My thanks go to all the paper authors, in both books, who have helped to make them possible.
Best regards,
