Bioarchaeology is more than “just” the study of the biological aspects of archaeology. It is more than “just” paleopathology, although this is frequently how the wider community views osteoarchaeology or bioarchaeology (Perry 2007). Bioarchaeology is the study of people who lived in the past, carried out using archaeology, but with a framework situated within, and developed from, biological methods. The key word is “people” as it is the people, or more specifically the individuals themselves, who are too often forgotten, or “lost”, in the broader whole.

Abstract

Bioarchaeology is more than “just” the study of the biological aspects of archaeology. It is more than “just” paleopathology, although this is frequently how the wider community views osteoarchaeology or bioarchaeology (Perry 2007). Bioarchaeology is the study of people who lived in the past, carried out using archaeology, but with a framework situated within, and developed from, biological methods. The key word is “people” as it is the people, or more specifically the individuals themselves, who are too often forgotten, or “lost”, in the broader whole.
