Abstract

Animal death is a complex, uncomfortable, depressing, motivating and sensitive topic. For those scholars participating in human-animal stud­ies, it is - accompanied by the concept of 'life' - the ground upon which their studies commence, whether those studies are historical, ar­chaeological, social, philosophical or cultural. It is a tough subject to face, but, as we hope this volume demonstrates, one at the heart of hu­man-animal relations and auman-animal studies scholarship.
