Do you fancy chickens and want to do a ph.d.? There are now _two_ funded ph.d.s at Bournemouth University as part of the Chicken Coop project:

- Analysis of material culture associated with the keeping and exploitation of chickens in Europe.

- Analysis of the effects of chickens on the environment in Europe and the effects of the environment on the chicken both when they first arrived and subsequently after they became established in different regions.


And for those of you who prefer to eat or pet chickens rather than research them, Jim Morris has just published a conference report from the Animal Paleopathology Working Group's conference in Stockholm a few months back. I really wanted to go, but the budget was a bit too tight for that. But with a good summary of the talks you get the good bits, and can see if there are any people whose research you need to keep an eye out for.

Unfortunately, having reading Krafft-Ebing's Psychopathia Sexualis, for me the question 'Do you fancy chickens' goes straight to the 'Wot abaht bestiality?' place.
