Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The authors present analyses on human skeletal remains from the Early Yangshao (7000-5000 BP) through the Early Longshan (5000-4000 BP) phases, with some data from the Western Zhao period (3800-2200 BP). (The latter two are not part of this tradition; the Yangshao phase sites are Beiliu, Jiangzhai, and Shijia.) They examined teeth, crania, and post-cranial remains, with particular interest in changes in diet and health between the Yangshao and Longshan phases, recognizing that this cultural change coincided with a climate that had become colder.
