Description The human and animal osteological material from the polycultural site Jevišovka – Nová is dated back to several historical periods (Linear pottery culture, Moravian painted pottery culture, Únětice culture, La Tene culture, Roman Age, Migration period). This study aims to describe bones or other hard tissues anatomically and taxonomically, and to observe potential pathologies, varieties and taphonomical changes. Due to a low quantity of anthropological finds in the osteological assemblage, this study is focused mainly on the evaluation of inhabitants’ relationship to domesticated animals in terms of subsistence strategies, and on subsequent data comparison for each period. We documented both domestic and wild fauna; the occurrence and the function of animal species were analogous to other archaeological sites from Moravia in these particular historical periods. Despite the low amount of analysed human remains, on the basis of archaeozoological analysis we were able to extend the knowledge of the local population throughout several episodes of settlement on this site.
