“One of the major questions that plagued osteologists for generations, which has yet to be adequately approached, concerns a representativeness of prehistoric/historic skeletal samples vis-à-vis the biological population from which and in which they apparently lived…. The contributions in Grave Reflections are highly relevant to the questions asked by the ‘New Archaeology’ in conjunction with a ‘New Osteology’ that are interested in lifestyle, cultural ecology and a full reconstruction of these in an ancient population… The topics are of great interest and relevance; the contributions are very modern, unique and promising.” — Hermann Helmuth, Trent University
Shelley R Saunders and Ann Herring teache in the Department of Anthropology at McMaster University.
“The theme is a unified one, yet the individual papers represent diverse geographical samples and a good selection of approaches to research questions of correspondence between written records and skeletal samples.” — M. Anne Katzenberg, University of Calgary
