Zooarchaeological data on the faunal remains unearthed from 2016 and 2017 excavations at Alaybeyi Höyük have primarily been used to understand the animal-based subsistence practices as well as regular and occasional cultural activities at the site. Various aspects of multi-scale, colorful and complex human-animal relationships and interactions have also been explored both with the help of animal remains and some notable cultural objects at this site. Socio-cultural factors such as the value of different animal species as wealth and power, animals’ roles in rituals and symbolic practices, animal-based social status and social stratification have also been the predominant issues in this chapter. Ethnographic accounts about the contemporary social groups in East and Southeast Anatolia were used as supporting sources while discussing these particular issues. Besides, some critical aspects and the contribution of other species in human health and ailments, as well as emotional bonds between human-animal have also been focused while presenting human-animal interactions at Alaybeyi Höyük.
