The agrarian life of the North 2000 BC-AD 1000 : studies in rural settlement and farming in Norway by Frode Iversen( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 14 articles presented in this publication represent some of the latest and most relevant research on rural settlement and farming from the Late Neolithic through the Early Medieval Period in Norway. It deals with the impact of climate change, plague and the AD 536{acute}{80}{93}7 volcanic event and some of the earliest farms north of the Arctic Circle. It provides new perspectives and archaeological evidence for the Viking age farm of Norway, differences in regional settlement structures of agrarian societies, the relation between houses and graves in the Iron Age, and varying food practices as indicators of societal change
Thinking about animals in the age of the Anthropocene by Almo Farina( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term 'Anthropocene', the era of mankind, is increasingly being used as a scientific designation for the current geological epoch. This is because the human species now dominates ecosystems worldwide, and affects nature in a way that rivals natural forces in magnitude and scale. 'Thinking about Animals in the Age of the Anthropocene' presents a dozen chapters that address the role and place of animals in this epoch characterized by anthropogenic (human-made) environmental change
The sheep people : the ontology of making lives, building homes and forging herds in early Bronze Age Norway by Kristin Armstrong Oma( Book )

10 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The overarching aim of The Sheep People is to examine what happens to the understanding of past societies when animals are perceived as sentient beings, agents with the ability to impact human lives. Not only are the agentive powers and potential of animals recognised, but also how this shaped prehistoric societies. Throughout, animals are considered as themselves, not as props, tools or consumables for human societies. A thorough review of recent research that supports the agential potential of animals from Human-Animal Studies and the social sciences, as well as ethology, biology and neurology is given, and discussed in light of the archaeological case study. In the Early Bronze Age in Northern Europe, a transition from building two-aisled to three-aisled longhouses as the primary farm dwelling took place. In Rogaland, southwestern Norway, this architectural change happened as the result of intensified human-sheep relationships, born from greater engagement and proximity needed to utilise wool. Evidence from landscape changes, settlements, mortuary practices and rock art give an in-depth understanding of the life-world of Bronze Age human and non-human agents and the nature of the choices they made. A rock art panel portraying sheep, man and dog demonstrates the entangled choreography of sheep herding"--Provided by publisher
Animal Umwelten in a changing world : zoosemiotic perspectives by Paul J Thibault( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book raises semiotic questions of human-animal relations: what is the semiotic character of different species, how humans endow animals with meaning, and how animal sign exchange and communication has coped with environmental change. The book takes a zoosemiotic approach and considers different species as being integrated with the environment via their specific umwelt or subjective perceptual world. The authors elaborate J. v. Uexküll's concept of umwelt to make it applicable for analyzing complex and dynamical interactions between animals, humans, environment and culture. The opening chapters of the book present a framework for philosophical, historical, epistemological and methodological aspects of zoosemiotic research. These initial considerations are followed by specific case studies: on human-animal interactions in zoological gardens, communication in the teams of visually disabled persons and guiding dogs, semiotics of the animal condition in philosophy, historical changes in the role of animals in human households, the semiotics of predation, cultural perception of novel species, and other topics. The authors belong to the research group in zoosemiotics and human-animal relations based in the Department of Semiotics at the University of Tartu in Estonia, and in the University of Stavanger in Norway

Hesten : en magisk følgesvenn i nordisk forhistorie by Kristin Armstrong Oma( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in Norwegian and Norwegian and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Denne boken handler om hvordan hesten har gjort seg gjeldende i menneskets historie. Hesten har gjennom tidene spilt en viktig rolle i hverdagslivet, som jaktobjekt og føde og som transportmiddel. Hesten har også hatt en viktig symbolverdi i form av avbilding på helleristninger, smykker, beltespenner, samt omtale i mange litterære kilder. Her fortelles sterke historier der hesten fremstår som et individ på med linje med mennesker. Boken handler også om fortidens samfunn og om arkeologene som avdekker gravfunn og rester etter bosetninger. Kristin Armstrong Oma er arkeolog
