ALLEVAMENTO E LAVORAZIONE DELLA MATERIA DURA ANIMALE DURANTE L'ETÀ DEL BRONZO NELLA PÈIANURA VENETA SUD-OCCIDENTALE

Marco Bertolini

Abstract


During the last two decades the framework of the Bronze age settlements discovered in the Veneto region has greatly increased through preventive archaeological excavations. These sites played an important role in order to obtain new evidences and information due to the rich amount of archaeological material like the faunal remains. This research is focused on the archaeozoological study of eight new Bronze Age sites, located between the Verona middle plain and the Polesine area, with the aim to acquire new palaeoenvironmental and economic data. In addition, the presence of abundant animal hard tissues artifacts has led to identify the chaîne operatoire of the bone, antler and ivory tools using an experimental approach. At the same time, the use wear analysis of a selection of objects has been carried out through an experimental work. This thesis consist of two main parts: the first one concerns the archaeozoological aspects with the quantitative analyses of faunal assemblages aimed at obtaining new data by a chronological and territorial point of view. The second part examines the animal hard tissues artifacts, analyzing the chaîne operatoire of the remains coming from the whole fauna assemblages and integrating these data with other collections of artefacts found in in the same territory. The analyses are focused on recognizing the raw materials’ choice, the typological identification and use wear analysis of the objects.
