This book presents a study of complete or partial animal burials from the Neolithic to late Medieval periods of southern England and Yorkshire. Not only does it present data on over 2000 deposits, it also discusses their interpretation, arguing that much previous work has based on generalised period-based assumptions. Morris instead argues that a biographical approach to these types of deposit allows the investigation of the specific above ground actions behind their creation, moving away from generalisations towards individual interpretations.
