If human burials were our only window onto the past, what story would they tell? Skeletal injuries constitute the most direct and unambiguous evidence for violence in the past. Whereas weapons or defenses may simply be statements of prestige or status and written sources are characteristically biased and incomplete, human remains offer clear and unequivocal evidence of physical aggression reaching as far back as we have burials to examine. Warfare is often described as ‘senseless’ and as having no place in society. Consequently, its place in social relations and societal change remains obscure. The studies in The Routledge Handbook of the Bioarchaeology of Human Conflict present an overview of the nature and development of human conflict from prehistory to recent times as evidenced by the remains of past people themselves in order to explore the social contexts in which such injuries were inflicted. A broadly chronological approach is taken from prehistory through to recent conflicts, however this book is not simply a catalogue of injuries illustrating weapon development or a narrative detailing ‘progress’ in warfare but rather provides a framework in which to explore both continuity and change based on a range of important themes which hold continuing relevance throughout human development.

Many physical anthropologists study populations using data that come primarily from the historical record. For this volume's authors, the classic anthropological 'field' is not the glamour of an exotic locale, but the sometimes tedium of the dusty back rooms of libraries, archives and museum collections. This book tells of the way in which archival data inform anthropological questions about human biology and health. The authors present a diverse array of human biological evidence from a variety of sources including the archaeological record, medical collections, church records, contemporary health and growth data and genetic information from the descendants of historical populations. The papers demonstrate how the analysis of historical documents expands the horizons of research in human biology, extends the longitudinal analysis of microevolutionary and social processes into the present and enhances our understanding of the human condition.

The excavations in the centre of Birmingham uncovered evidence of habitation from prehistoric and Roman times, but the 12th to 19th centuries presented by far the most evidence, from artefacts, environmental samples and structural remains. The medieval industrial past was of particular interest, with tanning and the manufacture of hemp and linen all playing a large role in the city's prosperity. Metal working reached its peak in the seventeenth century, with brass founding becoming important from the eighteenth century onwards. Most of the artefactual evidence attests to Birmingham's industrial past, indeed the evidence for domestic life is comparatively scant, with an anomalous burial of two people at Park Street presenting something of a mystery. This volume presents insights into the early industrial past of this important city and is an invaluable record covering eight hundred years of occupation.

Die Untersuchung von fossilem und rezentem Blutenstaub, die Pollenanalyse oder Palynologie, ist eine Fachrichtung der Botanik mit interdisziplinarer Ausrichtung. Die Pollenanalyse wird in erster Linie zur Rekonstruktion der Vegetationsgeschichte des Eiszeitalters eingesetzt. Sie vermag klimatische und anthropogene Einflusse auf die Entwicklung der Pflanzendecke aufzuzeigen. Von der interdisziplinaren Ausrichtung der Palynologie profitieren nicht nur Botaniker, Palaoklimatologen und Archaologen, sondern auch Palaookologen, Geologen, Palaontologen, Geographen, Forstwissenschaftler und Bodenkundler. Ferner findet die Pollenanalyse Anwendung bei der Bienen- und Honigforschung, bei der im Bereich der Allergologie wichtigen Pollenflugvorhersage und bei kriminalistischen Untersuchungen in den Kriminalamtern des Bundes und der Lander. Pollenanalytische Untersuchungen werden vor allem an botanischen, archaologischen, geologischen und geographischen Universitatsinstituten sowie an Landesinstituten, Landesamtern fur Denkmalpflege, Geologischen Landesamtern und Museen durchgefuhrt.Der >Leitfaden der Pollenbestimmung

Anthony R. Birley, a leading authority in the field of Roman prosopography and well known for his biographies of the emperors Hadrian, Marcus Aurelius and Septimius Severus, was Professor of Ancient History at the University of Manchester from 1974-1990 and at the Heinrich Heine University, Dusseldorf from 1990 until his retirement in 2002. This Festschrift covers a variety of topics relating to the Roman Empire. Eight contributions are in English, one - an excerpt from a historical novel - is in French, the rest are in German. The book is edited by Birley's last three Dusseldorf pupils.
