Abstract

In recent years the bioarchaeology of Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands has seen enormous progress. This new and exciting research is synthesised, contextualised and expanded upon in The Routledge Handbook of Bioarchaeology  in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands . The volume is divided into two broad sections, one dealing with mainland and island Southeast Asia, and a second section dealing with the Pacific Islands. A multi-scale approach is employed to the bio-social dimensions of Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands with contributions varying between region and/or site-specific scales of operation to the individual or personal scale. The more personal level of osteobiographies enriches the understanding of the lived experience in past communities. By including a number of contributions from sub-disciplinary approaches tangential to bioarchaeology, the book provides a broad theoretical and methodological approach. It provides new information on the globally relevant topics of farming, population mobility, subsistence and health; no other volume provides such a range of coverage on these important themes.
