The last 500 years is characterised by immense socio-economic and environmental transformations on a global scale. Animals were significantly affected by these processes but were also central to many of the transformations that shaped the Modern world. While there has been a growing number of researchers investigating animal bones from archaeological sites from this period, the “Zooarchaeology of the Modern Era” working group provides the first dedicated forum for these scholars to meet. This paper introduces a special collection of studies which resulted from the first meeting of this research group and explores how these investigations help us understand our Modern world.
