This presentation will provide a review of the history of animal bone studies on Roman sites in Britain and other areas of the western Empire since the 1970s. Drawing upon evidence from general syntheses and reports on specific assemblages, it will critically evaluate how well zooarchaeological analyses have been incorporated into general Roman studies and how successfully they have been integrated into excavation reports and. It will consider ways in which zooarchaeologists can make more effective contributions by highlighting examples of good practice and innovative research.
