Editorial Reviews


Review of the hardback: 'This volume provides the first comprehensive and synthetic treatment of key issues in the bioarchaeology of Southeast Asia ... All contributors provide abundant and useful references to relevant current literature as well as to historical sources in paleonanthropology and bioarchaeology, a feature of the book that will be appreciated by students and researchers alike. The mix of authors contributing to the volume is well balanced. The contributions of experienced investigators with long careers devoted to the analysis and interpretation of Southeast Asian biological variation and population history is appropriately accompanied by new methods, larger and diverse study samples and fresh perspectives offered by early an mid-career researchers ...' Anthropological Science

Review of the hardback: 'This is a key volume for all researchers in Southeast Asian archaeology physical anthropology. It also provides an extremely useful collection of papers for physical anthropologists, osteologists, and archaeologists working with human remains and funerary contexts in all regions of the world. By demonstrating the contribution bioarchaeology can make to wider regional debates in global prehistory, this volume should be an inspiration to those working in other regions to view individual sit-specific data within the bigger picture.' Archaeological Review from Cambridge

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.
