Stressed Out:

Debunking the stress myth in the study of archaeological human remains

UCL Institute of Archaeology, London, United Kingdom

19th - 20th May 2017

 CALL FOR PAPERS NOW CLOSED!!

REGISTRATION ALSO CLOSED!!

The study of archaeological human remains has co-opted the term ‘stress’, but it has remained poorly defined, is often misused, and, as noted by Hillson (2014, 204) ‘the word has ceased to have any clear meaning in bioarchaeology’.

The purpose of this conference is to re-consider the use of this term in human remains research and to start a dialogue regarding how to better define what we mean when we say ‘stress’ in archaeology. To this aim, the conference has a two-fold agenda.

  • Dental anthropology perspective – tooth malformations, defects, and pathology
  • Non-specific indicators of disease in paleopathology
