Studying faunal assemblage, which can tell us very clearly about human adaptation in the past, illuminates human adaptation to environment during the prehistoric period. However, Thailand lacks specialists in animal bone analysis, as well as animal bone examples for comparative study and analysis, from archeological sites outside the country. Training at the Anthropological Museum in Michigan University with Professor John Speth will improve my knowledge in both theory and methodology. Specifically, study of subsistence strategy of prehistoric people through a faunal assemblage from different periods allows for comparative study of the culture in the prehistoric period with other different areas. Lastly, the Anthropological Museum, Michigan University holds a number of animal bone examples, allowing for great development of my own knowledge about the study of prehistoric animal bones, knowledge and skills that I will apply to prehistoric archeology in Thailand.
