An analysis of pre-La Tène period osteological finds of domestic fowl within the Czech Republic is reported. The oldest evidence, a part of a female skeleton, comes from the site at Ostrov-Zápy (Prague – east district) dated to the end of the Bronze Age (end of Štítary culture, Hallstatt B3, which corresponds to the second half of the 9th century BC). Other skeleton remains come from the Rubín site (Louny distr.) dated to the Hallstatt D period. These and other pre-La Tène period archaeological finds are analysed in the Bohemian and European context. The origin of domestic fowl in Central Europe, as well as ritual aspects and size are discussed together with detailed morphometric characterization.
