This is a show about the connection between animals and humans in the past. Our experts, Alex Fitzpatrick and Simona Falanga will guide you through the interesting world of Zooarchaeology. This month’s episode focuses on the creatures of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Unlike our previous video game episodes, where we reconstruct the morphology of fantasy creatures, we will explore the depiction of extant and extinct fauna in the historical reconstructions which form the basis of this video game franchise.
