Taphonomic analysis of Neolithic seated burials

Taphonomic analysis of Neolithic seated burials | Neolithic | Scoop.it

Taphonomy is the study of how organisms decay and become altered following their death. Understanding how this process manifests in human burials during the excavation is extremely important, and can lead to improved interpretations of the burials when carried out properly.

Shannon Bench's curator insight, November 8, 2013 6:22 PM

These guys always looked creepy to me, like they were somehow the reincarnated forms of those that had passed. Kind of like what archeologist think too, but what I mean is that they were born like that... now they die like that too. It's all kind of creepy to me.

Allie Lau's curator insight, January 17, 2014 1:36 AM

It is great that people who study taphonomy are able to study and examine the bodies found in ancient burial sites.

Neolithic settlement reconstructed

Neolithic settlement reconstructed | Neolithic | Scoop.it
A neolithic settlement in Biskupin, north central Poland, is being reconstructed with the aid of EU funding.

The project is being carried out as an extension of the Open Air Archaeological Museum at the site.

“Biskupin's archaeological reserve is not only one of the most famous museums of its kind in Poland, but also in Central Europe,” said Piotr Calbecki, the Kuyavian-Pomeranian province's elected assembly leader (marshal), in an interview with the Polish Press Agency (PAP).

“This place has gained a well-deserved reputation, thanks to consistent development... and we are now using the opportunity to enrich the site,” he said.

Good point Shannon. The reality is that most archaeological sites that are open to the public like this one are conserved and interpreted, so they are really (re)constructions. I guess it's the actual site of the ancient city but the 'Open Air Archaeological Museum' is the interpretation.
Shannon Bench's curator insight, October 4, 2013 3:39 PM

I could ave sworn I already posted soemthing about this... it seems somehow familiar. Oh well. My orriginal thought was something along the lines of this whole "reconstricting" idea being somehow not really true. It's and ancient city. If you "reconstruct" it, it's no longer ancient.

Sarah Kerr's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:09 PM

This scoop is about how a neolithic settlement called "Biskupin" located in Northern Poland is being rebuilt thanks to funds up to 1 million Euros from EU.
