Description
Teeth, representing a variety of mammals including man, are common finds on archaeological sites and scientific study yields remarkable information both about the animals themselves and about the health, hygiene and diet of ancient communities. Simon Hillson's book draws together for the first time a mass of information on dental studies in archaeology and related disciplines and provides descriptions and specially-designed line-drawings to assist the identification of teeth from 150 different genera. After introducing the necessary anatomical background, the author examines the microscopic structure of teeth, ways in which age at death can be determined and methods for recording tooth variation within species and interpreting this in terms of domestication, evolution and the biology of ancient populations. A final chapter is devoted to the problems posed by dental disease. The detailed identification key, ageing tables, information on laboratory techniques and extensive bibliography form an important part of the book.

display_descriptionArchaeological discoveries of teeth provide remarkable information on humans, animals and the health, hygiene and diet of ancient communities. In this fully revised and updated 2005 edition of his seminal text, Simon Hillson draws together a mass of material from archaeology, anthropology and related disciplines to provide a comprehensive manual on the study of teeth. The range of mammals examined has been extended to include descriptions and line drawings for 325 mammal genera from Europe, North Africa, western, central and northeastern Asia, and North America. The book also introduces dental anatomy and the microscopic structure of dental tissues, explores how the age or season of death is estimated and looks at variations in tooth size and shape. with its detailed descriptions of the techniques and equipment used and its provision of tables and charts, this book is essential reading for students of archaeology, zoology and dental science.
