Description

The zooarchaeological research of Eneolithic sites in Slovenia is focussed on the area of Ljubljansko barje (central Slovenia), where faunistic remains from several pile-dwellings has been analized (Resnikov prekop, Maharski prekop, Hočevarica, Črešnja pri Bistri, Stare gmajne, Založnica). Our studies deal with a variety of zooarchaeological methods and approaches, including biometry, mortality curves, butchery patterns and pathological markers in trying to detect inter-site and intra-site differences in the faunistic material. Special emphasis has been given to worked animal remains.
