Human skeletal materials from archaeological settings offer a plethora of data on many aspects of human life and death in the past. Various types of analyses provide information on biological (both phenotipic and genomic) properties, as well as behaviour, health, and other insights into past populations. Recent developments and technical advances (e.g. in the fields of palaeogenomics, stable isotope analysis, geometric morphometrics and so on) are a valuable addition to the methods of so-called traditional bioarchaeology, resulting with new insights into various aspects of the past. The proposed panel will focus on new research on bioarchaeology of prehistoric populations resulting from various scientific fields and methods.
