Is there an archeaology job that involves animals and wildlife?
Dr. dig responds:
Archaeology is about the study of the human past, but when the human past is related to animals and wildlife, then archaeologists must know something about animals and animal behavior.
There are specialists in the field of archaeology that just study the ancient remains of animals discovered at archaeological sites. These scientists identify the bones, determine whether the animal was wild or domesticated, and how people kept or used the animal.
So to answer your question - yes, there are indeed archaeologists whose job it is to know about animals and wildlife, but especially those creatures that lived in the past.
