Abstract Computational modelling is increasingly gaining attention in archaeology and related disciplines. With the number of new models growing it is often difficult to evaluate their significance and the generality of the results. This is partially due to the narrow reporting of the model's results, which are often limited to those directly relevant to the research question posed in the first place. Although this is not an issue per se, models, if explored exhaustively, can provide a much wide...

Abstract Archaeology has been profoundly transformed by the advent of airborne laser scanning (ALS) technology (a.k.a airborne LiDAR). High-resolution and high-precision synoptic views of earth’s topography are now available, even in densely forested environments, to identify and characterize landform patterns resulting from past human occupation. ALS-based archaeological prospection relies on digital terrain model (DTM) visualization techniques (VTs) that highlight subtle topographical changes ...
Abstract The reduction of masticatory strains is considered one of the main factors that led to a pronounced morphological variation of the facial skeleton among modern humans. Although the archaeological record has provided evidence of bone remodeling activity being linked to craniofacial variation, its link with subsistence strategies has been proposed but not yet tested. Here, we evaluate the relationship between the strains arising from masticatory loads in the facial bones and the observed ...

Abstract Integrating ancient fossil DNA with modern genetic samples is aiding in advancing the fields of ecology and biogeography. However, wide gaps in the fossil record still remain throughout the tropics, while genetic and genomic datasets from tiny (

Abstract The Faynan region of southern Jordan became a center of industrial-scale metallurgical production during the Bronze and Iron Ages. However, socio-economic developments of the Pottery Neolithic period (ca. 6500-5500 B.C.E.) that helped set the stage for the rise of complex copper-producing societies are not well-understood. In this paper, we focus on ceramic technology at the early Pottery Neolithic site of Wadi Fidan 61 in the western part of the Faynan region. The composition of 38 pot...

Abstract Copper-base drums are among the most iconic artefacts of mid-late 1st millennium BC Southeast Asia and southern China, and more specifically of the Vietnamese Đong Sơn culture and the Yunnanese Dian culture. The wide distribution of these drums, in public museums and private collections, renders their technical and stylistic study difficult, and their comparison complex. In this paper, we focus on a copper-base miniature drum assemblage, discovered in a tightly delimited area of norther...

Abstract The economic foundation of the Xiongnu Empire has often been attributed to nomadic livestock. This stands in contrast to the contemporaneous development of sedentary, often fortified, settlements with evidence for handicraft production and agricultural products. This paper presents the first results of the analysis of the carbon and nitrogen isotopic composition of bone collagen from the remains of humans and animals from Xiongnu archeological complexes located in Western Transbaikalia ...
