Les éléments nouveaux de l'élevage aux temps modernes

Frédérique Audoin-Rouzeau


Many new characters appear together in archaeological modern faunas: noticeable or discreet, they reveal important changes that occurred in livestock breeding at this period. The most striking phenomenon is the increase in size of the domestic animals and the emergence of new improved breeds, whose beginning and development are still unequally known. This paper tries to document the history of this change, which sets the question of the origins of innovation in animal husbandry matter, and to collect, from cattle to farm-yard, evidences for this true zootechnical revolution.
