Survey: Demographics in Zooarchaeology


I would like to announce the launch of a survey, "Demographics in Zooarchaeology", aimed at learning more about who makes up the zooarchaeological community. How has the community changed in the past 20 years, and what does it look like now relative to archaeology as a whole?

If you work in any capacity with archaeological animal bone, please consider completing this survey!

The current study was inspired by Diane Gifford-Gonzalez's 1991 "Zooarchaeological Practitioner Survey" and the publication of those results in 1993 and 1994; many of the questions on the current survey are derived directly from her original version to allow for comparison of the results and the identification (or not!) of long-term trends. 

More information and the survey itself can be accessed here:

All data collected is completely anonymous. Please complete the survey only once.

The survey is in English but can be translated into other languages by right-clicking and choosing a language using Google translate. 

If you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to contact me-or for anonymous feedback, please fill out the final comment space at the end of the survey.

The survey will be open until the end of March.
