Behavior in our Bones: How Human Behavior Influences Skeletal Morphology (Paperback)

£95.95
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

There is a wealth of research papers, spanning multiple fields, that investigates morphological changes in the human skeleton in relation to behaviour and biomechanics. Finding this information is time consuming and often not accessible. Behavior in our Bones: How Human Behavior Influences Skeletal Morphology brings this information together in one source and provides an accessible approach to this topic, demonstrating the variation in this research while simultaneously covering the topic in sufficient detail for use in research. This resource provides a clear and consistent narrative, with each chapter having a similar structure, clearly building upon evidence for behavior reconstruction from morphological changes before discussing the archaeological/anthropological research and value. This resource is an in-depth and comprehensive introduction to theories and research that have allowed archaeologists/anthropologists to infer behavior and behavioral changes among past populations.

Dr. Hirst is an early career researcher which gives her a keen insight regarding the specific challenges new researchers face and the information needed to address these challenges. She earned a PhD in Dental and Skeletal Bioarchaeology from University College London where her research focusses on bone remodelling and biomechanical alterations to the human skeleton and inference of behavior and activity from skeletal morphology. While her specialty is 3D geometric morphometrics and human mandibular morphology, she is interested in a range of methods and behaviors which may be inferred from skeletal morphology. She has presented at numerous conferences and published research papers and chapters for edited books.
