Introduction / Cathy Willermet and Andrea Cucina -- On interdisciplinarity in bioarchaeology / Cathy Willermet -- Migration and mobility -- Population continuity and replacement in the pre-contact valley of Mexico / Corey S. Ragsdale and Heather J.H. Edgar -- Isotopes, dental morphology, and human provenience at the Maya site of Yaxuná, Yucatán, Mexico: mobility, interaction, and ethnicity / T. Douglas Price, Travis W. Stanton, and Andrea Cucina -- Biological affinities and mortuary archaeology in coastal northern populations of Yucatán at the end of the postclassic period: demic considerations / Andrea Cucina, Allan Ortega and Sandra Verónica Elizalde Rodarte -- Ethnicity and social identity -- Understanding late classic Maya mortuary ritual in caves: dental evidence of health from macro- and microscopic defects and caries / Amy R. Michael, Gabriel D. Wrobel and Jack Biggs -- True people, foreigners, and the framing of Maya morality / Andrew K. Scherer, Charles Golden, and Stephen Houston -- Human migration and ethnic expression in the southeastern borderland of Mesoamerica: a bioarchaeological perspective from Copan, Honduras / Shintaro Suzuki, Vera Tiesler, and T. Douglas Price -- Conclusion -- Interdisciplinary approaches in Mesoamerica: taking stock / Frances F. Berdan.
Summary: This edited volume presents work from both Mesoamerican-based and U.S.-based researchers who use a combination of cultural ethnohistorical, (bio)archaeological, dental, and chemical data in an interdisciplinary approach to research population history in pre-Columbian Mesoamerica. The goals for such a project are threefold: 1) to encourage more cross-fertilization of work between fields and subfields, in order to more appropriately address large regional questions of population history; 2) to explicitly address the theoretical and methodological challenges and rewards of interdisciplinary work; and 3) to introduce a larger audience to the state of interdisciplinary work in Mesoamerica.
