Description

What did people think of lions in the Roman empire? How did beasts handle their burdens in medieval Europe? What impact did the influx of ‘exotic’ animals have on Europeans in the early modern age of discovery? This seminar investigates the history of the many relationships between people and other animals in Europe, in the age before fossil fuels and industrialization. It surveys ancient, medieval, and early modern interactions of animals and people, showing both the impact that animals had on European cultures, societies, and economies from about 100 BC to 1800 AD, and how humans’ economic strategies and cultural choices affected animals.
