Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The authors examined the mortuary practices of the Neolithic village of Jiahu for approximately five hundred internments, and analyzed the human skeletal remains for incidence of several pathologies (chronic infectious disease, iron-deficiency anemia, and osteoarthritis). They were also interested in reconstructing social relationships along the dimensions of gender, age, and wealth, while recognizing that beliefs expressed in funerary ritual may not reflect the social status a living individual.
