Intertwined Lives: A Short History of Animals in the Past

Tuesday 21 January 2020, 7.00PM to 9.00pm

Throughout history, the animals with which we share our world have been influential in shaping human lives and beliefs. More than just livestock or food, animals were sources of transport and raw materials, scavengers and pests, vectors of disease, status symbols, mythological creatures, and companions. This course will draw on the rich archaeological record from York and beyond to explore our intertwined pasts, from prehistory to the post-medieval period.
