About this product
- DescriptionWhen it was published in 1996 Bioarchaeology of Southeast Asia was the first book to examine the biology and lives of the prehistoric people of this region. Bringing together the most active researchers in late Pleistocene/Holocene Southeast Asian human osteology, the book deals with major approaches to studying human skeletal remains. Using analysis of the physical appearance of the region's past peoples, the first section explores issues such as the first inhabitants of the region, the evidence for subsequent migratory patterns (particularly between Southeast and Northeast Asia) and counter arguments centering on in situ microevolutionary change. This second section reconstructs the health of these people, in the context of major ecomic and demographic changes over time, including those caused by the adoption or intensification of agriculture. Written for archaeologists, bioarchaeologists and biological anthropologists, it is a fascinating insight into the bioarchaeology of this important region.
- Author BiographyMARC 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.
