Description

Abstract:

The aim of this article is to establish distinctions between domestic and wild species (bovines and aurochs) and their gender, on the basis of faunal remains recovered from a number of early Neolithic sites in the Paris Basin. The measurements are made on fused bones following the traditional method. We have been able to separate groups of animals and to reveal specific animals at the end of the chronological sequence. We will focus on certain problems related to this method and propose some solutions, such as the use of paleogenetics.
