Reviews our knowledge of avifaunal history over the last 15,000 years, setting it in its wider historical and European context. It is a popular misconception that bird bones are rarely preserved, compared with mammals, and cannot be reliably identified when they are found. This book explores both these contentions, armed with a database of 9,000 records that have been identified from archaeological sites, most in England but also from elswhere in Britain, Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.
