Part of: Society for American Archaeology 84th Annual Meeting, Albuquerque, NM (2019)

This collection contains the abstracts of the papers presented in the session entitled "Zooarchaeology and Technology: Case Studies and Applications," at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

Technology is increasingly utilized to address long-standing questions in zooarchaeological research. In this session, participants will address the ways that the development and use of technologically-driven zooarchaeological methods produce and inform questions regarding cultural and ecological relationships between humans and animals. Papers in this session provide examples of how technology-based methods offer new perspectives on zooarchaeological questions and impact the field of zooarchaeology.Examples of a few technologies and practices to consider include: 1) Isotopic analysis of faunal materials, 2) AMS radiocarbon dating of faunal materials, 3) Zooarchaeological mass-spectrometry (ZooMS), 4) aDNA research, 5) Collections management, access, and digital curation, and 6) Data integration and FAIR data principles.
