ossamenta: Fossil of a pterosaur (Rhamphorhyncus longicaudus). (Flygödlefossil)
Do you like fallow deer? Do you want to do a Ph.D.? The Fallow deer project (Fallow Deer and European Society, 6000 BC - AD 1600) wants you!
"The doctoral research will explore the cultural significance of European fallow deer (D. d. dama), their impact on ideological landscapes and their role in cosmologies throughout Europe from the Neolithic to the Post-Medieval period. Issues to be addressed will include how status, gender and religious and cultural beliefs are reflected in fallow deer images and material culture. This will involve extensive research of iconographic representations of fallow deer, their display in material culture and the artefacts deriving from their remains. The doctoral thesis will not involve a zooarchaeological examination of fallow deer remains from archaeological deposits, as this research is being carried out by other members of the project team. Therefore an archaeological background is not a prerequisite." Full job ad.
