This 2016 newsletter features the latest reports on bioarchaeology fieldwork in Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, and the Philippines. There are also some detailed summaries of two recent conferences – ‘For the Love of Death’, held in the Philippines and the SEAMEA SPAFA meeting recently held in Bangkok. I also have advance notice of Professor Charlotte Robert’s, preeminent paleopathologist, visit to Dunedin, New Zealand to give the keynote address at the Australasian Society for Human Biology meeting in Decemebr 20106. I have compiled a long list of some great recent publications including Marc Oxenham and Hallie Buckley’s latest edited book entitled The Routledge Handbook of Bioarcheology in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands. And I have included a number of abstracts from students projects that always make interesting reading. This will be my last newsletter as editor; Dr Sian Halcrow from the University of Otago will take over the role in 2017.
