Rowley-Conwy, P. and Zeder, M. (2014) 'Wild boar or domestic pigs? Response to Evin et al.', World archaeology., 46 (5). pp. 835-840.
We continue to contest the claim by Evin et al. (2014) that Rosenhof E24 and other Mesolithic pigs were domestic. E24’s mixture of ‘wild’ and ‘domestic’ traits is best explained as indicating a behaviourally wild boar with some domestic ancestry. The fascinating complexities of this situation should not be downplayed in favour of a simplified, more newsworthy (but probably incorrect) conclusion.
