Exploring the love-hate relationship between humans and pigs, through the lenses of archaeology, biology, history and gastronomy

About the Author

Pia Spry-Marques gained her PhD in archaeology from the University of Cambridge, where, following post-doctoral research, she now works in communications. Her research took her across Europe and across time, from the late Iron Age back to the Ice Age, identifying, classifying and decoding the meaning of animal remains in human-associated deposits. Originally from Spain, Pia is predisposed to a keen understanding, awareness and love of the pig and the many tasty pork products that are so much a part of Spanish cuisine. piaspry.com / @piaspry

Reviews

Pig/Pork is an intriguing trot through our long partnership with our porcine pals. * New Scientist *
An important and in-depth history of humankind's relationship with the pig that makes you think very carefully about eating pork. -- Louise Gray, author of The Ethical Carnivore
Love them, loathe them or positively abominate them, pigs have been central to human cultures since the dawn of civilisation. This book is a feast for anyone who wishes to comprehend how two mammals' histories have been so deliciously and, in recent times, disastrously intertwined. -- Tristram Stuart, author of Waste and founder of Feedback
