Abstract

The trilingual, highly illustrated book comprises a Persian text with two long summaries in French and English. Designed for a wide readership interested in archaeology and its various disciplines, it offers an archaeozoological reading of the Iranian Prehistory and Antiquity. The book is divided into 4 chapters: 1- The importance of biological remains in archaeological research, 2- Conservation and documentation of human and animal osteological collections at the National Museum of Iran and 3- Bioarchaeological studies of the Iranian Plateau. The latter presents six case studies of osteological assemblages from the Palaeolithic to the modern period, addressing major themes such as the evolution of biodiversity, the domestication of herbivores, the diachronic evolution of subsistence economies on the Iranian Plateau, and the role of animals in trans-regional contacts during antiquity. A final chapter brings together the authors' reflections and prospects for future bioarchaeological research in Iran.
