Special Issue of Paleoparasitology A global perspective on ancient parasites: Current research projects

Organized by Min Seo, Karl Reinhard, Dong Hoon Shin
Using a variety of recently developed research techniques, paleoparasitological research has rapidly developed in recent years, entering a new stage to better understand our ancestors’ parasitic infections across the world. Despite these achievements, there has not much opportunity for archaeoparasitologists to gather and share in-depth opinions. For this reason, the 14th International Congress of Parasitology (ICOPA) held in Korea (Aug 19-24, 2018; EXCO) have provided very meaningful opportunities for the researchers concerned. The sessions were organized by archaeoparasitologists under the unified theme of "A global perspective on ancient parasites: Current research projects". In the sessions, many great studies were presented for parastologists, archaeologist…

The 3rd SEAMEO SPAFA International Conference on Southeast Asian Archaeology

A session of “The 3rd SEAMEO SPAFA International Conference on Southeast Asian Archaeology” Bangkok, Thailand (June 17-21, 2019)

Full Program Here


Conveners: Dong Hoon Shin and Yong Jun Kim

This session aims to bring together researchers from Asia to discuss diverse aspects of Early Asian societies; daily life, health, social institution, ritual landscape and complex relationship between urban and rural societies. The movement of people, goods and resources keep in close connections. It is said that everyone has clear idea on what cities are, but still far unclear how big it should be. Today in Switzerland, urban areas are more than 10,000 inhabitants, while in Iceland, populations of several hundred for urban. Thus this session will touch upon different views on what urban is in Early Asia. Almost all ancient cities had rural origin as gradual evolution process, and then vast non-urban landscape next to them. Comparative ana…

인더스 문명 유적 조사보고 (1): 8년에 걸쳐 이어진 인도 고고학 현장의 한국팀 발굴조사 이야기 - 신동훈, 김용준, 오창석, 홍종하 글·사진 (서울대법의학연구소)
우리 연구실은 지난 2011년부터 인도 고고학 현장 조사 및 발굴 작업에 참여할 기회를 갖게 되었는데 벌써 올해 8년째에 접어들었다. 인도에서의 작업은 우리 연구실 입장에서 볼 때 원 래부터 예정된 작업은 전혀 아니었고 우연히 이루어진 인연이 끊어지지 않고 계속되어 마침내 인도 굴지의 유적지 발굴 작업 까지 참여하게 된 매우 감회가 깊은 사업이었다. 올해 마침내 그 동안의 작업이 일단락 지어지는 순간이 온 터라 그간의 작업을 회고하여 지면에 보고할 기회를 갖고자 한다. 우리나라 연구 자가 인도에서 현지 발굴 작업까지 참여하여 결과를 남기는 경 우는 아직도 극히 드물다고 알고 있기 때문에 앞으로 현지에서 활동할 신진연구자를 위한 자료로 남겨 놓고자 한다...(후략)

인더스 문명 유적 조사보고 (2): 라키가리 유적 발굴 조사 전말
- 신동훈, 김용준, 오창석, 홍종하 글·사진 (서울대학교 생물인류학 및 고병리 연구실)

이제 인도 현지에서 우리 학술조사의 대상이 되는 라키가리 유적에 대해서 써 보기로 한다. 지난 회에 인더스문명의 특징 중 하나로 5천년 전 이미 세련된 도시 생활을 누리던 거대 도시 유적이 있다는 것을 기술한 바 있었고 현재까지 인도아대륙 전체에 서 5군데 (모헨조다로, 하라파, 돌라비라, 라키가리, 간웨리와라)의 거대 도시 유적이 확인되었다고 하였다. 이 중 라키가리 유적은 인도 학자들 의견에 따르면 모헨조다로보다도 규모가 더 큰 인더스 문명 …
