9780521825801: Bioarchaeology of Southeast Asia (Cambridge Studies in Biological and Evolutionary Anthropology)

Bringing together the most active researchers in late Pleistocene/Holocene Southeast Asian human osteology, this volume considers major approaches to studying human skeletal remains. Using analysis of the physical appearance of the region's past peoples, it explores issues such as the evidence for migratory patterns (particularly between Southeast and Northeast Asia) and counter arguments centering on in situ microevolutionary change. Written for archaeologists, bioarchaeologists and biological anthropologists, the book provides fascinating insight into the bioarchaeology of this important region.

Book Description:

Written for bioarchaeologists, anthropologists, and archaeologists, this is the first book to focus on the physical remains of the pre-historic inhabitants of Southeast Asia. Two major approaches to studying human skeletal remains are taken: firstly, an examination of the remains to perhaps discover where the people lived and how they got there in the past, and secondly the reconstruction of human health in the past, questioning whether, for example, people were healthy when they took up agriculture, and what impact past major migrations within the region had on health.

About the Author:

MARC OXENHAM is a Lecturer in the School of Archaeology and Anthropology at the Australian National University in Canberra. For the last 10 years, he has been involved in bioarchaeological research in northern Vietnam, particularly in Vietnamese tropical and subtropical health during the Holocene, but has recently extended his interests into the palaeohealth of sub-arctic foragers in Northeast Asia. NANCY TAYLES is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Anatomy and Structural Biology at the University of Otago, New Zealand. She has been working as the bioarchaeologist in a multidisciplinary international team working on a series of prehistoric sites in Southeast and Northeast Thailand, but has also worked in Burma/Myanmar, Cambodia and Vietnam. Her research interests focus on issues of Quality of Life in prehistory, using indicators of health measured from human skeletal remains as evidence.
