Produktbeschreibung
Social Bioarchaeology introduces the exciting and growing biosocial approach in archaeology that challenges the traditional methods of analyzing and interpreting human skeletal remains. The experts assembled in this volume outline the essential components of this research, focusing on the dynamic interactions between humans and their larger social, cultural and physical environments, and how these analyses increase our understanding of human adaptation. This volume will be a valuable resource for archaeologists, biological anthropologists, and all researchers with an interest in understanding our social and biological adaptations in a changing environment.
* Illustrates new methodological directions in analyzing human social and biological variation * Offers a wide array of research on past populations around the globe * Explains the central features of bioarchaeological research by key researchers and established experts around the world

Rezensionen
"Social Bioarchaeology makes an excellent reference for this subfield, and stresses the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach at a time perhaps when anthropology needs it most." -- Social Bioarchaeology, 12 April 2011
"Furthermore, despite the technical nature of many of the contributions, the overall concepts are generally presented in an organized and clear format that would not at all preclude their use in advanced undergraduate seminars." (American Journal Physical Anthropology, 14 March 2014) "In the first instance the book is dedicated to scientists and students of Archaeology, biological Anthropology, and Palaeopathology as well as to other scientists interested in social and biological variations of man by permanent changes of the environment." (HOMO Journal of Comparative Human Biology, 2011)
