Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Moore and Molleson describe the burials and human remains found at Abu Hureyra 1 and 2 and the Historic period. Only the data pertaining to Abu Hureyra 2 were indexed for OCM (Outline of Cultural Materials) subjects. They discuss who, what, where, and how the people of the settlement were buried. Some of their findings include: there were few infants or perinatal burials, women were buried within their houses, men were more often buried elsewhere, probably outside the village, the location of the burials within the houses was remembered, most of the burial rites stayed the same throughout the occupation of Abu Hureyra, burial goods were usually beads, but also flint and bone tools were found, most bodies were exposed to allow the flesh to decay before the final burial, and they probably had a cult of the ancestors. Burials at other sites within the Levant are compared to Abu Hureyra.
