Bioarchaeology is the study of human skeletal remains from ancient cemeteries and ossuraries, including the analysis of age-at-death, sex, health and disease, metric and nonmetric variables, all placed within the biocultural context of the archaeological site from which the remains are excavated.
This website is where you can find all about the latest findings in Bioarchaeology in Southeast Asia and the Pacific. An annual newsletter is compiled from researchers around the world. The newsletter was originally edited by Kate Domett, a bioarchaeologist, from James Cook University in Australia and from 2017 is edited by Sian Halcrow from the University of Otago in New Zealand.
The newsletter includes information about the latest bioarchaeological projects in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Laos, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand and many of the Pacific Islands but we are open to receiving contributions from all over mainland and island Southeast Asia, South Asia, China as well as Australasia. If you are a student or researcher in bioarchaeology and would like to contribute to or receive the newsletter via email please contact Sian Halcrow or sign up directly here
