Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-051: Human Remains

Author(s): Louisa B. Flander

Year: 1982


Analysis of human skeletal remains from 1978 and 1979 excavations and the 1978 survey is presented. At least 26 individuals from 14 sites are represented in the collections. None of the remains analyzed indicate that any of the individuals represented were in poor health. The fragmentary nature of the remains makes it impossible to draw any more definite conclusions concerning the health of the prehistoric population.

Sex and age determinants follow standard procedures, i.e., conservative estimates are based on the os coxae (pelvis) and dentition. Metric analysis is not appropriate at this stage, since -most remains are fragmentary. Detailed discussions concerning the analysis of human skeletal remains at these sites are included as appendices to the individual site reports

Originally the information in this record was migrated into tDAR from the National Archaeological Database Reports Module (NADB-R) and updated. In 2015, as part of its effort to improve tDAR content, the Center for Digital Antiquity uploaded a copy of the document and further improved the record metadata.
