Visiting your troops of cattle

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article, written in collaboration with zooarchaeologist Richard Thomas (University of Leicester), outlines some of the ways in which human care for domestic animals might be traced in the early modern period. Looking at printed husbandry manuals, wills and bone remains, it shows the contradiction inherent in animal care in the period: animals were both individualised and simply commodities for use.
