Description in the public portal

The project brings together researchers from various fields to create new methods and concepts for identification and interpretation of animal domestication, with a case study pertaining to reindeer domestication among the indigenous Sámi in northern Fennoscandia.

In stead of traditional identification methods and definitions of domestication, we focus on interactions between humans and animals as markers of domestication.
