6th ICAZ – Archaeozoology, Genetics and Morphometrics
Archaeogenetics is a growing interdisciplinary scientific area that has, in the last decade, undergone considerable improvement. Results now provide new perspectives concerning the domestication and subsequent evolution of animals. A combination of genetics and more traditional zooarchaeological studies are now bearing fruit.
This meeting aims to promote discussions between archaeologists, zooarchaeologists and geneticists.
Contributions to the conference will be organized in thematic sessions. We plan to stimulate a broad exchange of information among workers from various fields related to both archaeology and genetics. Topics to be discussed include:
A balanced representation of taxa (e.g. cattle, horse, dog, and cat) as well as geographic regions is foreseen. Although the meeting is mainly related to archaeozoology, presentations from botanists and anthropologists are welcome.
