10th Meeting of the ICAZ Bird Working Group

We are excited to be hosting the 10th Meeting of the International Council for Archaeozoology Bird Working Group on June 5-6, 2021.

The Bird Working Group (BWG) is an interdisciplinary consortium of researchers (archaeozoologists, archaeologists, zoologists, ornithologists) interested in the study of bird remains recovered from archaeological sites from around the world. The BWG was created by an initiative of Arturo Morales-Muniz in 1991. Its primary focus is to examine the relationships between people and birds in prehistoric, historic, and, at times, contemporary contexts. Topics include, but are not limited to, the identification of bird bones, the taphonomy of avian remains, methods of analysis and interpretation, the use of birds, and representations of birds in art.

This year the Bird Working Group Meeting will be held online. The details and program will be shared here when available.
