Product Description

Book Description

Reflecting upon recent developments in research on the relationship between the body, environment and society, this book examines the role of the body in human identification and in the forging of identities. It integrates biological perspectives with current discourse in the social sciences, focusing particularly on bioarchaeology and forensic science.

About the Author

Rebecca Gowland is a Lecturer in Human Bioarchaeology in the Department of Archaeology at Durham University. Her current research interests lie in health and demography of the past, skeletal ageing and age as an aspect of social identity, social perceptions, care and treatment of the physically impaired in the past, and the interrelationship between the physical body and social identity.

Tim Thompson is a Reader in Biological and Forensic Anthropology at Teesside University, where he also acts as a consultant forensic anthropologist. Most of his research examines the effects of burning on the skeleton and how this can help interpret the context of death. He is also interested in the relationship between identity and identification, modification of the body in the modern context, and the role of forensic anthropology in the world at large.
