Teeth and diet: what more is there? Teeth as markers for population history

Zakrzewski, Sonia R., (2007) Teeth and diet: what more is there? Teeth as markers for population history Robson-Brown, K. A. and Roberts, A. (eds.) In Proceedings of the 6th Annual Meeting of the British Association of Biological Anthropology and Osteoarchaeology. Archaeopress., pp. 26-36.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Teeth have long been used to assess diet or disease status in populations but have also more recently been employed to assess population history and patterns of migration and movement. Recognition and definition of human osteological populations, and therefore migrations of those populations, within the archaeological record has often been problematic. Using an ancient Egyptian case study, this paper explores the potential of simple raw dental measurements for delineating population mobility. This approach is then used to assess the form of migration along the Nile Valley over the period of the development and intensification of agriculture and state formation.
