Bioarchaeology is a powerful tool that brings invaluable empirical data on health and trauma, as well as interpretation to frontier and border studies. The studies included in the volume offer a view of border and frontier existence from the ground up—how ordinary people ascribe, deny, or assume cultural differences, and how they actively enact and modify their notions of belonging and identity within specific temporal-spatial contexts. The frontier type varies based on what each author is exploring and on the specific aspect the researchers chose to investigate in each chapter. Therefore, the aim of this volume is to examine the multitude of meanings and definitions borders and frontiers can have, while the theme of complexity, in one form or another, permeates throughout all the essays in this volume.
