Охотничьи виды млекопитающих средневекового Новгорода Великого (по археозоологическим данным)

Bones of 17 species of hunting mammals, found on the course of long-term excavations in the medieval layer of Novgorod the Great, are analyzed. Hunting mammals are sorted into two groups - meat and fur animals (with intermediate forms) - according to the way they have been utilized and selection of bones, found in the city, its neighborhood and settlements of Novgorod Land. The future possibility to discover the complete skeletons of mustelids (stoat, mink, weasel), which have died of natural causes in the city boundaries, is noted.
