A Bioarchaeological and Forensic Investigation of Prehistoric Multiple Burials in the Tennessee River Valley
This research analyzes mass graves from the Middle Tennessee River Valley and highlights problems with how massacres are defined and identified in bioarchaeology. Definitions of mass graves and the utility of using these features to identify massacres in the past are explored. It is suggested that there are different types of massacres and that a three-tiered definition of massacres may be more appropriate. In order to form a more complete understanding of whether or not they represent the victims of massacres, this revised approach to studying massacres is applied to several human skeletal assemblages in this region.
