Description

Nederlandse video over hoe onze EDAN team onderzoekt naar de verschillen tussen oeros en koeien. 

‘I research animal bones that are thousands of years old. During the Stone Age, things changed in the Netherlands: our ancestors started to keep cows and pigs instead of hunting aurochs and wild boars. But when exactly did that happen? When did free-roaming aurochs become cows in a barn? And when did a wild boar become a pig? Is it even possible to pinpoint exactly when that happened? To find out, I examine many different bones in the lab. By studying the smallest particles in the bones – the atoms and the DNA – I can find out where the animals lived, what they looked like and whether or not they roamed around freely.’
