Research Interests

My interests in a broad sense are oriented towards the analysis of animal skeletal remains from archaeological sites. The focus of my research can be divided in two basic themes: the reconstruction of past human-animal relationships, predominantly in the historic period and palaeopathology – the study of animal health and disease in the past. Within the theme of reconstruction of the interaction between people and animals in the past, my research is aimed at strategy of animal exploitation in the transitional period from Late Antiquity to Early Middle Ages in the Balkan area, more specifically the changes in animal husbandry and diet. My research is based on zooarchaeological evidence, archaeological data and written sources. Current research on early Byzantine site of Caričin grad is aimed at reconstruction of food supply, economic importance of animals in everyday life and changes in the strategy of exploitation of animals during the life of the city.

In cooperation with professors of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Belgrade, I started pioneering research in the field of Animal palaeopathology in area of the Central Balkans. I am currently working on the establishment and further development of the research on ancient animal diseases in this geographical area.
