About this title

Synopsis:

Animals have been used to human advantage for thousands of years. 'Animal Husbandry in Ancient Israel' presents an analysis of caprines and cattle husbandry in the Southern Levantine Bronze and Iron Age. The book employs key methodological approaches - comparative analysis, taphonomy, Geographic Information System spatial analysis, and ethnographic studies - to challenge prevalent views on the Southern Levantine ancient economy. 'Animal Husbandry in Ancient Israel' argues that the key concern of nomadic, rural and urban populations was survival - the common household maintained a self-sufficient economy - rather than profit, specialization or trade. The book will be of value to all those interested in the dynamic relationship between humans and animals in ancient Israel.

About the Author:

Aharon Sasson received his PhD in zoo-archaeology from Tel-Aviv University. He is currently a visiting scholar in the Department of Anthropology at the University of California, San Diego. His main research areas include taphonomic analysis of faunal remains from Biblical and Classical archaeological sites, animal husbandry and economic strategies in Southern Levant.
