Excavating Childhood from the Skeletal Record

(p.1) Introduction
Children and Childhood in Bioarchaeology

Patrick Beauchesne

Sabrina C. Agarwal

University Press of Florida

This introduction begins with a review of bioarchaeological studies of children and childhood in the past in order to contextualize the advances that have been made in recent decades and also to outline theoretical shortcomings in these studies. This chapter then proceeds with an argument for further integration of biological and social streams of research in order to produce a more holistic bioarchaeology of children. Life course theory, interdisciplinary approaches, and an accounting of developmental plasticity are central to this vision. The chapter concludes with detailed summaries and contextualization of the remaining chapters in the volume.

Keywords:   Life Course, Childhood, Bioarchaeology, Interdisciplinary
