"Social Bioarchaeology puts the spotlight on the powerful and interesting story that human remains from archaeological settings tell about the human experience." Clark Spencer Larsen, The Ohio State University

"Decidedly embracing the concept of "holism" within anthropology, the contributors to this book dive deep into the human past and the intricacies of the human condition." Anne Grauer, Loyola University of Chicago

Social Bioarchaeology introduces the exciting and growing biosocial approach in archaeology that challenges the traditional methods of analyzing and interpreting human skeletal remains. Agarwal, Glencross and the experts assembled in this volume outline the essential components of this research, focusing on the dynamic interactions between humans and their larger social, cultural and physical environments, and how these analyses increase our understanding of human adaptation. The authors draw upon studies from the Americas, Europe and the Middle East examining the central themes, theoretical issues and methodological innovations in the field. Each chapter offers significant new research that integrates elements from biological, behavioral, ecological and social research. This new volume will be a valuable resource for archaeologists, biological anthropologists, paleopathologists and all researchers with an interest in understanding our social and biological adaptations in a constantly changing global environment.
