ICAZ 2014 - Stories written in teeth

We are glad to announce that the session "Stories written in teeth: New archaeological insights from tooth related studies" has been approved by the ICAZ Committee for the 2014 ICAZ conference in San Rafael, Argentina.

It will be a great opportunity to bring together zooarchaeologists using methods related to animal dental remains as proxies to study human palaeoecology, subsistence and social behavior. We hope the session will stimulate dialogue and interaction from various disciplines related to teeth. Topics include but are not limited to tooth marks on bones, tooth ornaments, stable isotopes, cementum analysis, tooth microwear, enamel microstructure, dental calculus…

Participation in the session includes oral presentations and posters. In both cases, an abstract of the proposal must be submitted online by February 28th directly on the conference web page: www.icaz2014argentina.com. The proposal must specify that it is aimed at session "18. Stories written in teeth", and we would appreciate a copy sent to our email as well: florent.rivals@gmail.com. On the conference web page you will find the guidelines for abstract presentation and for posters, as well as information about registration.

We are planning to get all contributions (oral presentations and posters) published in a special issue of a peer-reviewed international journal. We will provide more information about the publication schedule during the ICAZ conference.

You are all welcome to participate in the session. Feel free to make circulate this call for papers to other colleagues who you think might be interested. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

In the last years the study of dental remains from archaeological sites has become an important element bringing new insights to understand past societies. This potential is related to the application of new methods or improvement of existing methods that contributed to provide a better knowledge of human palaeoecology, subsistence and social behavior.

The objective of this session is to bring together presentations and discussions on the last advances in the ways of analyzing tooth-related evidences in the archaeological record. Themes are related to palaeoecology and zooarchaeology. Possible topics include but are not limited to stable isotopes, cementum analysis, tooth microwear, enamel microstructure, dental calculus, tooth marks on bones, or even tooth ornaments.

In this session preference will be given to those presentations combining different methodologies and disciplines applied to large mammals and with clear archaeological implications.
