NEW PAPERS ON BURNED SKELETAL REMAINS

2017 has been good to us at HOT Bones. We just got word that we had two more papers published. 

One of them, entitled “Burned bones tell their own stories: a review of methodological approaches to assess heat-induced diagenesis” was published at Applied Spectroscopy Reviews. Is is co-authored by Adriana Mamede, David Gonçalves, Maria Paula Marques, and Luís Batista de Carvalho. If you want a quick overview of what’s being done on Chemical Anthropology regarding burned bones, this paper is a good start!

The second paper was published at Cadernos do GEEvH and is entitled “Por meias medidas: a espessura dos tecidos duros em dentes humanos expostos a altas temperaturas e o seu valor para a estimativa da idade”. It is co-authored by Inês Oliveira-Santos, Márcia Gouveia, Eugénia Cunha, and David Gonçalves. It investigates the association of dentine-cementum proportions with age at death.

Not a bad way to say goodbye to 2017!
