Stories written in teeth : New archaeological insights from tooth related studies

[Congrès, colloques, réunions]

du 22 au 27 septembre 2014
San Rafael (Argentine)

Dans le cadre de 12th ICAZ International Conference

In the last years the study of dental remains from archaeological sites has become an important element bringing new insights to understand past societies. This potential is related to the application of new methods or improvement of existing methods that contributed to provide a better knowledge of human palaeoecology, subsistence and social behavior.

The objective of this session is to bring together presentations and discussions on the last advances in the ways of analyzing tooth-related evidences in the archaeological record. Themes are related to palaeoecology and zooarchaeology. Possible topics include but are not limited to stable isotopes, cementum analysis, tooth microwear, enamel microstructure, dental calculus, tooth marks on bones, or even tooth ornaments.

In this session preference will be given to those presentations combining different methodologies and disciplines applied to large mammals and with clear archaeological implications.

Participation in the session includes oral presentations and posters. In both cases, an abstract of the proposal must be submitted online by February 28th directly on the conference web page : The proposal must specify that it is aimed at session "18. Stories written in teeth", and we would appreciate a copy sent to our email as well : On the conference web page you will find the guidelines for abstract presentation and for posters, as well as information about registration.
