Faunal analysis, also called zooarchaeology, is the study of the bones, teeth, scales or shells of animals from archaeological sites. Analyzing faunal assemblages can significantly contribute to the understanding of the people who created the archaeological deposits at the site.

There are many benifits of including faunal analysis in your reports such as:

providing a more unbiased view of socio-economic status

seasonality studies

catchment areas determination

paleo-enviromental/habitat reconstruction

the flexibility to be tailored to fit any research question relating to any faunal bearing site
