Social Bioarchaeology introduces the exciting and growing biosocial approach in archaeology that challenges the traditional methods of analyzing and interpreting human skeletal remains. The experts assembled in this volume outline the essential components of this research, focusing on the dynamic interactions between humans and their larger social, cultural and physical environments, and how these analyses increase our understanding of human adaptation. This volume will be a valuable resource for archaeologists, biological anthropologists, and all researchers with an interest in understanding our social and biological adaptations in a changing environment.
