2006. Nilsson Stutz, L. Setting it Straight. A re-analysis of the Mesolithic Barum burial according to the principles of Anthropologie ‘de terrain.’

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The Mesolithic burial from Barum in Northeastern Scania has long been a subject of academic controversy regarding both the age of the burial and the sex assessment of the remains. A less public discussion has taken place regarding the initial position of the body in the burial. In this article, the documentation of the burial is analyzed in detail according to the taphonomic principles of anthropologie ‘de terrain’ and a reconstruction is proposed based on the results.
