By discussing notions of care and control and drawing on syntheses of Russian-language ethnographic data from eastern Siberia, this paper explores the diversity and nuances of hunter-gatherers’ interactions with animals. While some contexts may reveal respectful yet diverse treatments of the hunted animals, others suggest that hunter-gatherers also might have interacted with animals kept as pets, captives or companions, thus implicating relations in which notions of care and control seem to be tightly bound.||Funding Details:||European Commission Horizon 2020||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Cambridge University Press||Journal:||Cambridge Archaeological Journal||Start page:||1||End page:||14||Copyright (published version):||2019 The McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research||Keywords:||Human–animal interactions; Hunter-gatherer communities; Siberia; Northwest Europe; Mesolithic period||DOI:||10.1017/s0959774300000226||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
