June 30-August 4, 2013 (5 weeks). Skeletal remains within cemeteries and individual burials have proven to be an invaluable source of information in archaeological endeavors. The wealth of knowledge obtained from burial assemblages provides insights into culture; migratory patterns; contact and trade; social complexities and population dynamics; familial relationships, and ancestral health. Archaeology attempts to reconstruct the particulars of past populations through their material remains and, complementary to it, bioarchaeological studies comprise an understanding of the skeletal remains of past populations themselves and integrates this understanding with adaptive changes to environment and culture.
