A New Look at Old Bones: Inferring Burial Ritual from Bones in Breccia at the Mesolithic Shell Middens of the Muge Valley
Type de publication:Conference Paper
Résumé (en anglais):
While Muge valley shell middens have long history of excavations and research, to date relatively little attention has been paid to burial practices. Here we examine burials from the new excavations (2000-2003) and compare them to published data and burial information gathered from the skeletal material preserved in breccia at the Museo Geologico in Lisbon (Portugal).
