Atuatuca Tungrorum was the name of the Roman settlement established in Tongeren (FR: Tongres). Ancient funerary practices in the area were recently studied by several of our colleagues. April Pijpelink and colleagues excavated and analyzed several unusual burials at the Beukenbergweg. Katrien Van de Vijver and colleagues identified perinatal and deviant adult burials within the settlements.
This Spotlight of the Month presents the work of Kim Quintelier and her colleagues on a post-medieval Carmelite monastery in Aalst (East Flanders, Belgium). They used stable isotope examination combined with macroscopic analysis to study this urban graveyard.
This Spotlight of the Month is an essay on the treatment of human remains in a Belgian museum context. This reflection implies the study of the remains as well as its preservation, i.e. storage and/or exhibition. For this matter, ethical and museological aspects are observed through legislation and a few examples from Belgium.
In this Spotlight of the Month, we’re presenting you two recent publications on prehistoric case studies by three of our highly experimented members: one regards paleopathological traces on a Late Neolithic Mandibular Condyle by Caroline Polet and Frank L'Engle Williams; the other one examines a Late Neandertal lower left P3 by Michel Toussaint and colleagues.
Both articles analyzed human remains from rockshelters or caves from the Meuse River system, in Central Belgium, where hundreds of similar archaeological sites are known.
In this Spotlight of the Month, we’re introducing some of our members who are working/have worked abroad: Isabelle De Groote and Joke Somers. Isabelle is currently working in a British university while Joke just came back from a Swiss university. Discover some of their work.
