The Bioarchaeological Evidence for Elder Care in Roman Britain (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Rebecca Gowland.

The elderly are the most neglected demographic in archaeology. In today’s youth-obsessed society the elderly are consistently denigrated, particularly those perceived to be physically or mentally frail. This negative construction is partly a consequence of an unprecedented ageing population, often conceptualised as problematic and burdensome to society. A related and growing concern in contemporary populations is the physical abuse of the elderly, believed to be an escalating, demographically...

Cared for or Outcasts? The bioarchaeological analysis of two individuals with potential disabilities from Aztec Ruins (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Alyssa Willett. Ryan Harrod.

This project focuses on the assessment of individuals who appear to have held a lower status, worked harder, and been at more risk for trauma then other members of the same community. The West Ruin site of Aztec Ruins is an important site in the U.S. Southwest that came into prominence after the decline of Pueblo Bonito in Chaco Canyon. Within this site there are two individuals who appear to have suffered significant traumatic injuries that healed. Both individuals were young adults; one...

evidence for antemortem or perimortem Trauma among individuals recovered from the 2013 milwaukee county institution poor farm cemetery excavations (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT David Strange.

2013 excavations at the Milwaukee County Institutional Grounds (MCIG) cemetery resulted in the recovery of approximately 685 burials containing over 700 individuals, adding to the existing collection of 1649 individuals excavated in 1991 and 1992. The individuals from the 2013 excavations were inventoried and examined macroscopically for evidence of pathology and trauma. Sean P. Dougherty (2011) observed that the pattern of traumatic fractures among the 1991 and 1992 collection reflect not...

Health and Stress of Neolithic Yangshao Culture Skeletal Population from Wanggou Site, Zhengzhou (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Yawei Zhou. Qipeng Yan. Wanfa Gu.

The Wanggou site, located in the Lower Yellow River valley, is a large Yangshao culture cemetery, dating to 7000-5000 BP. Two hundred and eleven skeletons were examined for variations from normal morphology, including non-metric traits, to characterized pathology of the Neolithic Age residents of Central China. This paper examined skeletal evidence of bone disease, trauma and musculo-skeletal stress markers (MSM) of ancient residents. A prevalence of spina bifida, spondylolysis, lumbarization,...

An Intersite Comparison of Human Skeletal Trauma in Shang Dynasty China (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Daniela Wolin. Yuling He. Zhonghe Liang. Junfeng Guo.

Participation in the near-constant military campaigns of the Late Shang dynasty of China may have constituted an important social role for much of the population. Archaeologists have employed mortuary analysis and a close-reading of contemporaneous oracle bone inscriptions to help elucidate the nature of warfare and its participants. A large-scale bioarchaeological analysis of human skeletal remains could not only provide valuable insight on the relationship between weaponry as grave goods and...

A Smashing Good Time: the identification of prehistoric blunt force weapons using experimental bioarchaeology. (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Meaghan Dyer.

Experimental bioarchaeology can aid identification of prehistoric weapons and inform current understanding of the context of violence and social interactions in small-scale societies. Determining the direct mechanism of cranial blunt force trauma in prehistoric cultures is currently a complex issue. A vast array of tools and weapons exist that can produce blunt force injury, complicating identification of individual weapons associated with archaeological cranial injuries. This paper presents a...


Troubled Times in Late Prehistoric Wisconsin: Violent Skeletal Trauma Among the Winnebago Phase Oneota (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT Alexandria Oemig. Jordan Karsten.

In 1991, Milner et al. published a groundbreaking article that showed the Native American Oneota culture in a new light. Their research at the Norris Farms #36 cemetery in west-central Illinois indicated that the Oneota there were plagued by intergroup violence and small-scale tribal warfare. Milner et al. examined 264 skeletons and discovered evidence for trauma on 43 (16.29%). At least one-third of adults at Norris Farms #36 died violent deaths. However, the group at Norris Farms #36 was part...

Warfare in the Mississippian World: Comparing Variation in War across Small and Multi-Mound Centers (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Mallorie Hatch.

Warfare during the Mississippian Period (ca. AD 1000-1500) of the U.S. Midcontinent and Southeast has been hypothesized as an important political and social practice throughout the region. This paper will explore diachronic and synchronic evidence of warfare, comparing and contrasting evidence between large and small sites. Particular emphasis will be placed on observations of warfare patterns in the Central Illinois Valley of west-central Illinois. Skeletal remains with warfare-trauma have been...
