Human remains can answer all sorts of questions about our ancestors, such as how they died, what sort of diet they had, and what average age they lived to. This book looks at the history of the study of human remains and how new scientific techniques have massively expanded what ...we know about our Neolithic ancestors. Issues such as the health and subsistence lifestyle of these people are considered, along with evidence of conflict between them and also the extent to which the people of Neolithic Britain can be considered a distinct population. This is the only book on the market to consider the human remains from the Neolithic in this way.
