Beyond the Bones: Engaging with Disparate Datasets provides a forum in which anthropology students and scholars wrestle with the fundamental possibilities and limitations in uniting multiple lines of evidence, such as skeletal remains, cemetery reports, ancient DNA, hospital records, clinical datasets, nutritional interviews, and linguistic models. The book is useful for a wide range of academics and graduate students undertaking interdisciplinary research.
- Examines how disparate datasets are combined using case studies from current research
- Draws on multiple sub-disciplines of anthropological research to produce a holistic overview that speaks to anthropology as a discipline
- Explores examples drawn from qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research to illustrate the breadth of anthropological work
