      Mortuary archaeology Burial practices Hazendonk Tightly flexed burials: Abstract: In this study of the Middle Neolithic sites of Ypenburg-locatie 4 and Schipluiden-Harnaschpolder in the western Netherlands, the mortuary practices of these sites are discussed through the study of archaeothanatology. Building on the first Wild Things volume (Oxbow Books ) which aimed to showcase the research putting archaeologists researching the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic at the cutting edge of understanding humanity’s past, this collection of contributions presents recent research from an international group of both early career and established scientists.

      Recent accounts of the investigation of social organisation as reflected in mortuary practices have been based on role theory. If the notion of roles is deemed to be part of an inadequate conception of social systems, then it is necessary to reconsider existing archaeological approaches to burial data. The Neolithic of the Near East is a period of human development which saw fundamental changes in the nature of human society. It is traditionally studied for its development of domestication, agriculture, and growing social complexity. In this book Karina Croucher takes a new approach, focusing on the human body and investigating mortuary practices - the treatment and burial of the dead - to.

      Founded in , the Prehistoric Society's interests are world wide and extend from the earliest human origins to the emergence of written records. This is where you will find reviews of the latest books dealing with Prehistoric Archaeology. During the Neolithic era, funerary structures began to emerge as man settled down his life. Sometimes, they were stone chambers in the Far East, or giant earth mounds (barrows) found in England. Many times they were designed around astronomical considerations like the winter and summer solstices Dolmen.

Fowler. Evidence for Neolithic graves and cemeteries in Greece is scant and not without its problems, although this study shows that the data can still be rendered meaningful.
