This article seems to confuse human remains with bones.[edit]

The term osteoarchaeology simply refers to the remains of bones, whereas "human remains" could refer to so-called "mummies" where more than a skeleton has been preserved. I am in no position to edit this article, yet this confusion could be misleading. (188.74.102.164 (talk) 15:35, 9 December 2010 (UTC))

Proposed merge with Medieval bioarchaeology[edit]

There is no obvious reason as to why this needs a separate page. Gaia Octavia Agrippa Talk 23:49, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

My original intention was to include this information in the Bioarchaeology page. However, I saw no obvious fit and I ended up having a lot of information which I thought would not fit very neatly into the page. I am not opposed to merging the two pages but I feel that because of the way I structured the Medieval bioarchaeology page and the amount of information I have included, it may seem repetitive and awkward in the Bioarchaeolgy page. However, I will leave it up to the creators of the Bioarchaeology page to decide if they want to include it or not. User: Zechinime 17:22, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

In my opinion,merging the pages would be a good idea if both sides were willing to edit their articles, so that it would make more sense. Angelgirl10.0 (talk) 00:09, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

There's an Archaeology wikipedia page and a Medieval Archaeology wikipedia page. There's no good precedent for collapsing Medieval Bioarchaeology into Bioarchaeology. Killgrove (talk) 18:05, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Bioarchaeology. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
