Abstract

This study aims to understand and reconstruct the over-all health and treatment of domestic animals at Humayma through the results of a study of animal paleopathology. The study is a general overview of a sample of remains from the 2012 dig season of Humayma, with particular attention to which bones show pathological lesions and what pathologies are present. This study illustrates how animal paleopathology enriches our understanding of past cultures.
