Preliminary abstract: The adoption of domestic cattle at Neolithic Catalhoyuk involved changes to the general animal economy to incorporate the management and land use demands of cattle herds as well as social changes to existing foodways emphasizing the use and display of wild aurochs remains. This project will investigate how domestic cattle were integrated into existing foodways and animal herding demands at Catalhoyuk by estimating the probability that remains were domestic based on a Bayesian change-point model of Bos body-size data.

Preliminary abstract: Given their close relationship with humans, dogs are likely an excellent genetic proxy to use when examining human migration history. Dogs migrated with humans to the Americas, and so studying their population history can show insights about Native American population history as well. Recent genomic studies of Native Americans have yielded differing conclusions about the source population that peopled the Americas, and whether it was a single, homogeneous source population or multiple populations contributing to Native American diversity.
