Abstract Disability of animals can be connected with their physical inabilities that remove them from economic exploitation by humans. It can reflect notions of what disability means for humans, in metaphorical, symbolic, and normative ways. Finally, the practical aspects can certainly interact with the notional ones creating new categories of what it meant to be a disabled medieval animal. This also has to be seen connected with disabilities of humans caused by animals. The seion will concentrate on both aspects.

Abstract The Medieval Animal Data-network is also presenting a session on the way humans teach and train animals. Humans have used animals for their strength, speed, and other valued characteristics. People use training to exploit those intrinsic natural traits and, at the same time, mold animal behavior to conform to human needs and to fit the human image of them. At the same time, animals, whether wild or domesticated have their own agency. Through their individual or general behavior, animals change, or influence human actions in a variety of social contexts. Hints surrounding such complex and entangled aspects of training and teaching can be found in a variety of texts, images, and even in special archaeological materials.
