The Archaeology of Women:

Mortuary Practices and Bioarchaeological Reconstruction


In the recent years, there has been an increased amount of literature regarding the bioarchaeology and its multiple facets, including disability and diseases affecting women and children in times of violence and war.

Studies of human bones discovered in archaeological context are traditionally assigned as females or males. This approach is valid, yet unsatisfactory because it does not give sufficient consideration to the role played by women in various contexts and in different moments of their lives. This volume seeks to straighten this imbalance and focus on women from a distinct perspective.

Questions that the edited volume might address include, for example: How can an anthropological analysis offer a possible explanation for women’s role in society? What was the status of women in various societies and how can archaeology, anthropology, and bioarchaeology contribute to a better understanding? Which are the most common paleo pathologies observed on human skeletal remains of women? How do mortuary practices display women’s social status within a community?

We are looking forward to receiving relevant paper proposals from a diverse range of theoretical positions and research contexts or periods. Scholars from around the world are invited to submit papers tackling recent archaeological discoveries and their interpretations or innovative methods applied to the previously known material, dating from prehistory to early modern period.

Submission deadlines:

February 25, 2018: A tentative title, a short biographical note of the contributor(s) and 300 words abstract in English.

May 20, 2018: Accepted contributors are expected to submit their full papers, in English (70.000 characters maximum with spaces and notes included, and no more than 15 figures).

 Contact: Mihai Gligor, PhD (, Andrei Soficaru, PhD (


The submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and published

between 31st July - 30th August 2018.
