A human femur diaphysis in the form of a burin was excavated from a secondary burial context containing osteological remains and industry in the Archaeological Complex of Perdigões (Portugal). The majority of these evidences are thermo-altered and highly fragmented. Radiocarbon dates for this context place it in the middle 3rd millennium BC. Typolo...

Agriculture frst reached the Iberian Peninsula around 5700 BCE. However, little is known about the genetic structure and changes of prehistoric populations in diferent geographic areas of Iberia. In our study, we focus on the maternal genetic makeup of the Neolithic (~ 5500–3000 BCE), Chalcolithic (~ 3000–2200 BCE) and Early Bronze Age (~ 2200–1500...

For the past 15 years, a succession of stable isotope studies have documented the abrupt dietary transition from the Mesolithic to the Neolithic in Western and Northern Europe. Portugal, with its Late Mesolithic shell middens and burials apparently coexisting with the earliest Neolithic, further illustrates the nature of that transition. Individual...
Article
In 2009, a pit burial dated to the Bronze Age was excavated in Monte do Gato de Cima 3 (Portugal). The purpose of this paper is to describe the pathological absence of the left mandibular condyle noted in an adult male skeleton and to discuss possible diagnoses, including subcondylar fracture, cystic defect, congenital absence, condylar aplasia and...

Considerando as frequentes violações de direitos perpetradas contra os povos indígenas, atingindo territórios e pessoas, comprometendo a vida e até o direito de prantear os mortos, torna-se imperioso conhecer os cuidados e as apreensões dos indígenas em relação à vida e à morte. Para isso, propomos analisar narrativas etnográficas acerca dos Apinay...

A preliminary analysis of the location of 76 archaeological sites in an area of the Serra das Confusões National Park (Piauí - Brazil), using open access data within a geoprocessing and statistical framework. Our results suggest differing conditions for the location of different rock art techniques. Cumulative visibility from these sites indicates...

Available for download and purchase from www.archaeopress.com. Teeth are a very important resource in Biological Anthropology. One of their many uses is the evaluation of dental wear, which can document both masticatory and non-masticatory behavior. The objectives of this work are to 1) present a protocol for scoring evidence of non-masticatory ac...

Trepanation is a recurrent subject in the literature, with the earliest known examples of this surgical procedure belonging to the Mesolithic/Neolithic periods. The Iberian Peninsula is no exception to this tendency, where most of the known trepanation cases were found in coastal areas (Silva, 2003; Campillo, 2007). We present the results of the hu...

ABSTRACT: The Church of Our Lady of the Rosary of White Men, Belém, Pará, Brazil is a colonial archaeological site partially excavated in 1994. The site was used as a religious and funerary space during the 1600 and 1700’s. The access to activities and spaces of the Rosary fraternities in colonial Brazil was segregated. There was some permeability...

Despite poor conservation of non-adult osteologic remains, their frequency in samples excavated from late Prehistoric sites in the Iberian Peninsula varies between 10.47-58.24%. The objectives of this study were (I) to assess the frequency of sub-adult individuals in the series included in the study, (II) to create a profile for the age at death of...

Presentation of a case-study, a Bronze Age male individual with unilateral absence of the mandibular condyle. Taphonomic changes were ruled out as a possible explanation for this feature. Congenital, infectious or traumatic pathologies are the possible explanations, although a conclusive diagnostics was not possible at the time of this analysis.

No presente texto são apresentados os dados resultantes da análise de um conjunto de amostras osteológicas humanas com cronologias entre os 4º e 2º milénios a.C., provenientes da freguesia de Brinches (concelho de Serpa), resultantes de trabalhos de minimização de impactos da Rede de Rega do Alqueva. O estudo incidiu sobre aspectos demográficos, mo...

This paper describes a newly defined nonmetric trait in the human dentition, i.e., Hypotrophic Roots of the Upper Central Incisors (HRUCI). Teeth presenting HRUCI are characterized by abnormally short roots whose crowns exhibit no apparent morphological alterations. The trait was observed in six samples from collective funerary sites in the Iberian...

ABSTRACT The archaeological excavation at the Monastery of Bom Jesus in Peniche (Portugal) revealed occupational layers that record the urban evolution of this area of the city from the end of the 1500’s. The most striking features in this context are the constructive evidences of the city dynamics and the abundance of material culture that attest...

Question
Movement is generally modeled in GIS using Least-Cost Paths. These most frequently use topography (or relief) as a cost surface for movement. Nevertheless, other factors may be considered. Have you ever come across an application of the amount of sunlight/shade to the calculation of LCPs?

Project
Este projeto tem como objetivo principal promover a produção de conhecimento sobre a Biologia Humana e História Populacional do Homem no Nordeste do Brasil, principalmente no que se refere à adaptação deste ao meio ambiente; a afinidade/distância biológica entre populações a nível sincrônico e diacrônico; questões de povoamento regional e sua história populacional, bem como questões demográficas a partir do estudo de remanescentes biológicos humanos. Os resultados desta proposta terão impacto principalmente nas áreas científicas da Arqueologia, Odontologia (e outras Ciências da Saúde), Ciências Forenses e História. The main goal of the study is to help produce knowledge on Human Biology and population history of Man in Northeast Brazil, mainly in what it concerns (I) the adaptation of human groups to the environment; (II) biological distance/affinity among populations regionally through time; (III) regional population history and (IV) matters related to demographic studies of human archaeological series. Results from the study are expected to have impact on several scientific areas such as Archaeology, Dentistry (and other Health Sciences), Forensics and History.
