Special Issue on Biomedical Studies of Ancient Asian Humans and Animals
This Special Issue is dedicated to pioneering reports on original studies and review articles using the latest biomedical tools for more effective analysis of ancient specimens unearthed at archaeological sites in many Asian countries. We welcome invaluable contributions from colleagues conducting relevant research on the Asian continent, which will serve as a foundation for more relevant studies to be conducted in the future. Those studies will enrich our knowledge about various aspects of ancient humans and animals in Asia, which has been lacking to date.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
Materials: human and animal specimens collected at archaeological sites in Asia
Stable Isotope Analysis
Ancient DNA analysis
Statistical analysis of ancient human or animal populations
Historical approach to ancient animals
