A radiographic investigation of juvenile scurvy among the sub-adult remains from Stymphalos and Zaraka, GreeceDownload
Historically, scurvy has seen only minor investigation in children. This is also true among archaeological populations. The development of criteria for assessing juvenile scurvy among archaeological populations has provided a novel means of paleopathological analysis for discussing this disorder...
Comparative Histology of Burned Mammals Using Light Microscopy: Examining Heat-Induced Changes in Femoral Samples of Deer, Pig and Cow.Download
This study focuses on the histological comparisons between deer, pig and cow. Five femoral specimens from each species were selected and burned at 600oC, 800oC and 1000oC. Burned and unburned control samples were thin-sectioned for light microscopic analysis. Visibility of histological...
Reconstructing Childhood Diet using Dentine Microsamples from Skeletal Remains from Kenchreai and Isthmia, GreeceDownload
An understudied topic in bioarchaeology is that of childhood diet after weaning. Palaeodietary reconstructions have typically focused on examining breastfeeding and weaning or adult diets. This study uses stable isotope analysis of dentine microsamples to examine the diets of juveniles at the...
Report on the Human Remains from the Sodo Tumuli and Circolo I and from Terontola Examined at the MAEC in May, 2010Download
This report presents the results of the examination of Roman-period skeletal remains of 13 individuals from the Sodo Tumuli, plus one intrusive burial at Circolo I (now on display in the Museo dell’Accademia Etrusca e della Città di Cortona), and one individual from Terontola. Largely due to...
The Ontogeny of Postcranial Robusticity and Shape in Middle Holocene Cis-Baikal Hunter-Gatherer PopulationsDownload
This dissertation investigates changes in bone robusticity and shape from birth to young adulthood in Middle Holocene (~7,500- 3,700 years cal BP) Cis-Baikal hunter-gatherer populations. First, how biomechanical properties change with age throughout the upper and lower limb is evaluated. Second,...
