Archaeozoology is the study of animals in archaeological contexts. Mostly, it studies the remains left behind when an animal dies. These are mostly bones and teeth. Sometimes hair, skin or other body parts are found and can be studied. Archeaozoology also studies the animals' effect on the environment and their relationships with humans. The people who study archaeozoology are called archaeozoologists. Their training can be as biologists or archaeologists.
