  1. 1. Neolithic Fisheries : Osteoarchaeology of Fish Remains in the Baltic Sea Region

    Author : Carina Olson; Jan Storå; Karin LImburg; Jan Ekman; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Neolithic fisheries; local and regional ecosystems; species variation; burnt and unburnt bones; representativeness; contextual quantification; fishing technology; spatial patterns; Archaeology subjects; Arkeologiämnen; osteoarkeologi; Osteoarchaeology;

    Abstract : The variety of fish species found at the archaeological sites indicates the exploitation of local and regional ecosystems. The focus of the fisheries varies from site to site. READ MORE

  2. 2. Oral Disease and Health Patterns : Dental and Cranial Paleopathology of the Early Iron Age Population at Smörkullen in Alvastra, Sweden

    Author : Carola Liebe-Harkort; Jan Storå; SOFIA TRANÆUS; Simon Hillson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Smörkullen; Alvastra; Sweden; Early Iron Age; dental disease; cranial lesion; caries diagnostics; pathways of infections; dietary patterns; environment; health; Historical osteology; Historisk osteologi; osteoarkeologi; Osteoarchaeology;

    Abstract : In skeletal remains of ancient populations, evidence of dental and craniofacial pathology is often well preserved in the form of lesions on the teeth or bones. Meticulous, detailed recording of these lesions provides baseline data on which a realistic assessment can be made of the probable impact of dental diseases and its sequelae on health of these earlier populations.

  3. 3. Tracing Prehistoric Activities : Life ways, habitual behaviour and health of hunter-gatherers on Gotland

    Author : Petra Molnar; Jan Storå; Christopher Knüsel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Activity-related change; Musculoskeletal Stress Markers; Extramasticatory wear; dental wear; Health index; Pitted Ware culture; Neolithic; Ajvide; Archaeology; Arkeologi; osteoarkeologi; Osteoarchaeology;

    Abstract : In the present thesis, skeletal and dental evidence of physical strain and habitual behaviour has been investigated through musculoskeletal stress markers (MSM) and extramasticatory dental wear. The skeletal and dental traits have been examined in relation to health patterns and material culture in order to gain better knowledge of life ways of hunter-gatherers on Gotland with special focus on Pitted Ware culture sites and the Ajvide site in particular.

  4. 4. The Palaeopathology of Kirchberg : Evidence of Deficiency, Inflammatory and Tumorous Disease in a Medieval Rural Population in Hessia, Germany

    Author : Nikolaos Roumelis; Jan Storå; Michael Schultz; Pia Bennike; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Kirchberg; rural population; Middle Ages; palaeohistopathology; palaeopathology; microscopy; diagnosis; health; inflammatory disease; tumorous disease; micrometastases; deficiency disease; environment.; Archaeology; Arkeologi; osteoarkeologi; Osteoarchaeology;

    Abstract : This study investigates the interaction of disease processes, disease and environment, female and male health as well as health and ageing in a medieval rural village population. For this purpose multiple skeletal indicators of health have been studied, including deficiency, inflammatory, infectious and tumorous disease. READ MORE

  5. 5. Working Animals and Skeletal Lesions : Paleopathology of Cattle and Horse in Iron Age and Medieval Öland, Sweden

    Author : Ylva Telldahl; Jan Storå; László Bartosiewicz; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; Skeletal lesions; draught use of cattle; sacrificed horses; Iron Age; Middle Ages; Eketorp ringfort; Skedemosse wetland; Öland; sweden; osteoarkeologi; Osteoarchaeology;

    Abstract : Central to this thesis is the relationship between animal husbandry practices and the associated pathological conditions. Since bone elements from the extremities are subjected to abnormal load when animals are put to hard work this research aims to go further and interpret the prevalence of varying lesions and their connection with animal husbandry by using methods such as osteometric analysis, conventional radiograpic and bone mineral study, as well as incorporated molecular analysis.
