An Archaeological Examination of the Human Remains associated with Vasa (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Allison N Miller Simonds.

When Vasa sank in 1628, approximately 30 lives were lost. Through the course of the excavation of the ship in the 1950s and 1960s, over 1,500 human bones were recorded and cataloged, which are currently believed to represent 15 individuals. The human remains have been the subject of osteological, odontological, and DNA analyses, though none of these studies have taken into account their archaeological context. This research provides the first complete archaeological analysis of the human remains...

Can commingled human remains be useful in reconstructing life during the Neolithic? A case study from Xemxija, Malta. (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Chloe Sinclair.

Osteological material has historically been underexploited in archaeological research.  This is most directly true of commingled assemblages which present an exclusively difficult challenge to bioarchaeologists.  The commingled assemblage here examined is the result of the episodic usage of rock-cut tombs, advanced in post-mortem fracture, and disruption during transport and storage. The aim of this study is to reconstruct skeletal profiles, age, sex, and pathological demographics through the...


Characterizing the Deceased Mariners of the Swedish Warship Vasa: An Analysis of Personal Possessions Found in Association with Human Remains (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jessica Diane Smeeks.

Countless studies have been conducted in reference to shipboard life.  Historians have often considered the daily diaries, journals, and correspondences of the individuals who partook of this lifestyle.  Meanwhile, archaeologists have considered personal chests of seamen, officers’ cabins, and personal materials scattered across wrecks, but few have considered personal property found with skeletal remains.  The reason for this lack of investigation is the preservation of materials.  Vasa is an...


Cultural Modification of Human Remains at Cerro Jazmín, Mixteca Alta (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ricardo Higelin Ponce De Leon.

Bone modification in human remains is a common practice among ancient civilizations. In Mesoamerica important cultural modifications on human bone have been reported, such as cranial deformation, dental modification, groves in long bones, and mandibles used as ornaments. In Oaxaca, within the Valley of Oaxaca, some of these cultural modifications of human remains have been dated to the middle Formative period in the Rosario Phase (BC. 700/500). Meanwhile, cultural modifications, such as cranial...


Diet and Dentition on the Black Sea: An examination of dental health and dietary reconstruction at Medieval Mesambria (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Monique DePace. Kathleen McSweeney.

Dental health and dietary habits from the Bulgarian town of Mesambria have never been investigated for the medieval period. The town has its roots in Mediterranean culture, however, in the Early Byzantine and Medieval periods in Bulgaria, the Slavic Bulgars were vying for power and territory, and Mesambria became caught between the dying Byzantine Empire and the new Bulgarian state. The Bulgars brought with them a different diet, with a preference for millet, meat, and cheeses over the...


Differential Diagnosis of an Unidentified Skeletal Anomaly: a Case Study of Mandibular Resorption from the Smith Creek Site, Mississippi (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Christine Halling. Ryan Seidemann.

The Smith Creek Site (22WK526), located in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, is principally a Coles Creek Period site (AD 700-1400). Human remains were recovered from this site in the 1960s by avocational archaeologists. Although the Smith Creek human remains are fragmentary and commingled, and the records related to their collection are nonexistent, these remains still present a significant data source for this region and time period. Of particular interest is an isolated adult mandible that...


Domestic space or burial space? Interrogating the Final Gravettian at the abri Pataud (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Roland Nespoulet. Dominique Henry-Gambier. Laurent Chiotti.

The status and significance of the assemblage of human remains in the Final Gravettian of the Abri Pataud (level 2, 22 kya) had never really been broached during the excavations of H.L. Movius (1958, 1963). A three-pronged approach (archive analysis, study of old collections, and targeted excavation), started in 2005, allows us to propose a new interpretation of these remains as well the entirety of level 2. This study takes into account the natural configuration of the rock shelter, its...


Ethical Issues In The Study And Preservation Of Early Modern Church Burials Of Northern Finland (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Sirpa Niinimäki. Titta Kallio-Seppä. Tiina Väre. Sanna Lipkin.

A recent project on the study of early modern church burials of Northern Finland in the perspective of research and preservation of human and other material remains has raised several ethical issues. We have identified several parties who partake in the interest, opinions and sentiments in dealing with this particular context including local community, parish and the government. The rights, administration, and jurisdiction of different parties involved is far from being explicit, and this has...

The Forensics of Commodification: Examples from Louisiana of the Acquisition, Analysis, and Legal Problems Related to Trophy Skulls Seized from Illegal Sales (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ryan Seidemann. Christine Halling.

Since the inception of the Louisiana Department of Justice’s human remains acquisition program in 2007, two Tibetan kapalas have been recovered from illegal sales. This commodification of human remains constitutes technical violations of the law, but the nature of the remains makes for an awkward fit to the existing laws. The forensic, bioarchaeological, and cultural analysis of these remains are difficult due to their altered nature, leading to problems of disposition. Questions inherent in...


Forgotten mummies. Reflections on the management of human remains exhibits in Ecuadorean museums. (2015)

A later prehistoric mortuary complex on the Moray Firth: The Covesea Caves, NE Scotland (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lindsey Büster. Ian Armit. Laura Castells Navarro. Jo Buckberry. Rick Schulting.

The Sculptor’s Cave in NE Scotland is known for its Late Bronze Age and Roman Iron Age human remains, which were unearthed during excavations in 1928-30 and 1979: the former suggest the curation and display of (possibly fleshed and adorned) juvenile heads, while the latter indicate the practice of decapitation of (predominantly adult) individuals inside the cave. These remains are being analysed as part of a project at the University of Bradford to reanalyse and publish the excavation archive....
