Environmental Archaeology Program curator Dr. Kitty Emery and Dr. Erin Thornton (University of Florida graduate, 2011) have published an article assessing what is known about the origin of the domestic turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) in the Mesoamerica region, comparing this scant but growing amount of evidence to how turkeys were domesticated in the southwest US. The article, published in the Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory, can be found HERE.
