  1. 1. Detecting Sex and Selection in Ancient Cattle Remains Using Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms

    Författare :Emma M Svensson; Anders Götherström; Juha Kantanen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aurochs; cattle; ancient DNA; SNP; pyrosequencing; selection; Bos taurus; Historical osteology; Historisk osteologi; Genetics; Genetik; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Sammanfattning : All contemporary taurine cattle originated some 10,000 years ago when their wild ancestor, the aurochs, was domesticated in the Near East. Although the aurochs was widespread also in Europe, there is no evidence for a local domestication. The aurochs has been extinct since 1627 and therefore little is known about its biology. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Bovine Teeth in Age Assessment, from Medieval Cattle to Belgian Blue : Methodology, Possibilities and Limitations

    Författare :Sabine Sten; Ebba During; Sven Lindskog; Morten Meldgaard; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Archaeology subjects; Arkeologiämnen; Arkeologi Osteologi Tänder Nötkreatur Medeltid Åldersbedömning Metod; Historical osteology;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim of the present thesis was to develop and characterise an age assessment method based on incremental lines in dental cementum using contemporary bovine teeth and teeth from archaeological faunal assemblages. The investigations also included two other age assessment methods: tooth wear pattern and macroscopic dental measurements. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Oral Disease and Health Patterns : Dental and Cranial Paleopathology of the Early Iron Age Population at Smörkullen in Alvastra, Sweden

    Författare :Carola Liebe-Harkort; Jan Storå; SOFIA TRANÆUS; Simon Hillson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Smörkullen; Alvastra; Sweden; Early Iron Age; dental disease; cranial lesion; caries diagnostics; pathways of infections; dietary patterns; environment; health; Historical osteology; Historisk osteologi; osteoarkeologi; Osteoarchaeology;

    Sammanfattning : In skeletal remains of ancient populations, evidence of dental and craniofacial pathology is often well preserved in the form of lesions on the teeth or bones. Meticulous, detailed recording of these lesions provides baseline data on which a realistic assessment can be made of the probable impact of dental diseases and its sequelae on health of these earlier populations.

  5. 5. Animal husbandry in the Viking Age town of Birka and its hinterland : excavations in the black earth 1990-95

    Författare :Bengt Wigh; Anne Karin Hufthammer; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; animal husbandry; domestication; Viking Age; Birka; cattle; pig; sheep; horse; dog; cat; fur trade; Boskapsskötsel; Kreaturshandel; Uppland; Birka; vikingatiden; Osteologi; historisk osteologi; Historical Osteology;

    Sammanfattning : The Birka Excavations 1990-95 provided a unique opportunity to excavate a Swedish Viking Age town stratigraphically, allowing the finds - including extensive and well-preserved faunal remains - to be dated accurately. This in turn has given the opportunity to study the nature and development of Viking Age animal husbandry in a new, closer perspective. LÄS MER
