The history of pigs in the ancient Near East, from domestication to taboo, has fascinated historians and archaeologists for decades. Rejecting simple explanations, Evolution of a Taboo book adopts an evolutionary approach, weaving together zooarchaeological and textual data to unravel the relationship between pigs and people from the Paleolithic to the present day.
