Vortrag “The Middle Neolithic child burials from Ölkam: Assessing possibilities for the documentation and analysis of block-excavated human remains” von BAG-Förderpreisträgerin Doris Jetzinger (Reihe NeuBioArch)

13. Dezember @ 19:15 - 20:00 CET


In 1996, two child burials were discovered in settlement pits of the Middle Neolithic Lengyel culture at the site of Ölkam in Upper Austria. Due to their fragile condition both burials were only partially excavated and were then recovered as blocks. This circumstance poses distinct challenges for their documentation and analysis. Therefore, an interdisciplinary approach was developed for the study of these burials including 3D surface documentation of the burial blocks, macroscopic anthropological analysis, and 14C dating using Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS). Results obtained during the project show that both burials are typical Westlengyel burials that are defined by a distinct heterogeneity. Thereby, the results also contribute to the understanding of the burial practices of this cultural group.
