Description

Abstract:

This study concerns relationships between peoples and cervids as reflected by archaeozoological analyses for the Neolithic period in Romania. A summary of previous and recent studies in the area shows variation in human-cervid interactions.

Cervid remains of the Neolithic Period in all regions of the country are described in terms of their frequencies and hunting management, of the morphology and size, and also in terms of biogeography (distribution, population dynamics).

The species discussed are red deer (Cervus elaphus), roe deer (Capreolus capreolus), fallow deer (Cervus dama) and elk (Alces alces). Among the cervids, which have principally used as a source of food, but also as raw materials and as body parts in rituals, the reed deer took a principal position.
