Homme et animal sauvage au Levant occidental vers 2000 av. J.-C. Quelques éléments de réflexion.

Abstract : Relationship between the world of men and wild animals are often studied if documentation is appropriate or if i is particularly abundant. This is the case for Egypt or Mesopotamia. In the Levant, data is scarce and varied, and it's only by combining those of archaeozoology and iconography that it becomes possible to understand the various aspects of this relationship. Hunting is no longer practised to obtain food, it is a step toward capturing animals and controlling their behaviour. Human beings and animal connections are orientated towards a concrete appropriation (control and taming) but also towards a symbolic appropriation.
