NEW ANTHROPOLOGICAL DATAFROM THE ARCHAIC NECROPOLIS AT MOTYA(2013 EXCAVATION SEASON)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In this paper we present the most recent anthropological study on bones ofthe archaic tombs of Motya (Sicily, Italy), where a large necropolis has beenbrought to light since the first excavations of Joseph Whitaker. The newlyacquired data suggest that this portion of the Motya archaic cemetery wasnot exclusively devoted to the incineration of particular classes of age butthe urns and cists could contain multiple burials of very different ages..
