Pig study sheds new light on the colonisation of Europe by early farmers
Date:9/3/2007

estication of the European wild boar, the new domestics completely replaced the Middle Eastern pigs that had arrived in Europe as part of the farming package.

Dr Greger Larson, who performed the genetic analysis said: The domestic pigs that were derived from the European wild boar must have been considered vastly superior to those originally from Middle East, though at this point we have no idea why. In fact, the European domestic pigs were so successful that over the next several thousand years they spread across the continent and even back into the Middle East where they overtook the indigenous domestic pigs. For whatever reason, European pigs were the must have farm animal.

The research is part of an ongoing research project based at Durham University which explores the role of animals in reconstructing early farming, ancient human migration and past trade and exchange networks around the world.
