    Teaching and Research

    Dr. Chiara Cavallo is senior lecturer at the Amsterdams Archeologisch Centrum where she teaches various courses on issues and methodology of zooarcheaology, the study of animal remains found in archaeological excavations. She studied Archaeology at the University of Torino and specialized in zooarchaeology at the University of Amsterdam where she completed her PhD on the Late Neolithic subsistence strategies in northern Syria . She has done research of faunal material from various sites from Europe and the Near East , dating from the Mesolithic to the (post)medieval time. She is also involved in research programs relating the Romanization and the food provision to the roman army of the Northwestern area of the Netherlands and in studies of faunal remains from a number of Dutch sites. Her research interests and teaching lie in the relation between man and animals within an historical and ecological perspective.
