Inhaltsangabe: This volume presents the data, analyses, and interpretation of a wide range of osteological and burial data. The Petexbatun bioarchaeology subproject included complete assessment of burial practice and osteology. The chapters on this research explore population variability in time and space, paleopathology, and trauma from skeletal remains throughout the various sites and the inter-site areas of the Petexbatun, as well as from Seibal and Altar de Sacrificios. Yet Wright's innovative study goes on to apply the most recent physical and chemical techniques, particularly isotopic analysis, to assess diet and health in the populations of the Pasion region. Variability between sites, across levels of status, and over time are assessed and conservatively interpreted in the light of contemporary issues and problems of physical, chemical, and statistical methodology. Finally, the Petexbatun and Pasion region results are compared in order to reassess past and current studies and interpretation of skeletal remains in other regions of the ancient Maya lowlands. In the final chapters of this work, Wright's cutting-edge osteological analyses are used to critique current alternative interpretations of Late Classic to Postclassic culture history and alternative hypotheses on the role of changes in climate, ecology, diet, nutrition, invasion, and other factors in the end of Classic Maya civilization and the transition to the Postclassic period.

This volume also provides an independent assessment of the results of other Petexbatun region subprojects and a comparative evaluation of recent studies by other projects of Late and Terminal Classic culture change. For bioarchaeologists, this work sets a new standard in breadth and depth of osteological study. For Pre-Columbian scholars in general, it provides new insights into the environmental and biological issues involved in the debate on the end of the Classic period of Maya civilization.

Buchbeschreibung Vanderbilt University Press, United States, 2006. Hardback. Buchzustand: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This volume presents the analyses and interpretation of a wide range of human osteological and burial data. The Petexbatun bioarchaeology subproject included a complete assessment of burial practices and human osteology in the Petexbatun sites and in the Pasion region at large. The chapters on paleopathology explore the human skeletal evidence for childhood nutrition and ill health throughout the various sites and the inter-site areas of the Petexbatun region, as well as from Seibal and Altar de Sacrificios. Wright s innovative study goes on to apply the most recent chemical techniques, particularly isotopic and elemental analyses of human bones, to assess the ancient diet of the populations of the Pasion region. Variability between sites, across social status groups, and over time is evaluated and conservatively interpreted in the light of contemporary issues and problems of bioarchaeological methodology and interpretation. Wright uses the new Petexbatun and Pasion region osteological results in order to re-examine past and current work on skeletal remains from other regions of the ancient Maya lowlands. In the final chapters of this work, Wright s osteological analyses inform a critique of the role that bioarchaeological data have played in the development of current ideas regarding the role of ecology, diet, nutrition, disease, invasion, and other factors in the demise of Classic Period Lowland Maya society. For bioarchaeologists, this work sets a new standard in the breadth and depth of osteological study, and its integration with problem-oriented archaeological research. For Pre-Columbian scholars in general, it provides new insights into the environmental and biological issues central to the debate on the end of the Classic period of Maya civilization.
