Random hunting and the composition of faunal samples from archaeological excavations a modern example from new zealand

, : Random hunting and the composition of faunal samples from archaeological excavations a modern example from new zealand. Journal of Archaeological Science 3(4): 321-328

The ability of analyses of the age- and sex-composition of faunal samples from archaeological excavations to permit reliable inferences concerning prehistoric culling practices and, in particular, to distinguish between wild and domesticated animals is investigated by examining the demographic composition of 14 groups of red deer (Cervus elaphus) shot at random from a helicopter in the Southern Alps of New Zealand in early 1975. Such random hunting can produce samples of bones that are apparently biased with respect to age and/or sex. The implications of these findings for prehistoric studies are discussed briefly with particular reference to the exploitation of red deer in Italy and Switzerland, and greater caution in excavating and analyzing faunal samples is urged.

Hydrogenases are powerful catalysts for light-driven H2 production using a combination of photosensitizers. However, except oxygen-tolerant hydrogenases, they are immediately deactivated under aerobic conditions. We report a light-driven H2 evolut...

Although well-established guidelines give advice on how to use analgesics, measure pain, and organize pain treatment, many patients still suffer from avoidable severe pain. We assume one reason for this is that pain is inadequately addressed in ro...
