Bodily Dimensions in Medieval Burials: On Age- and Gender-Structures in Socially Stratified Churchyards
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies.
2009 (English)In: From Ephesos to Dalecarlia: Reflectionss on Body, Space and Time in Medieval and Early Modern Europe / [ed] Elisabet Regner, Cecilia von Heijne, Laila Kitzler Åhfeldt, Anna Kjellström, Stockholm: Statens historiska museum , 2009, 119-144 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The article deals with the social zoning of medieval Scandinavian cemeteries, and how such as age, gender and bodily health affected a persons social status. It is known from contemporary written sources that different parts of the churchyards were unequally valued. Is it possible, then, to archaeologically identify burial zones representing different social strata? Can differences be seen in age- and sex-distribution, health and mortality within and between the zones? How and where were different categories of people buried? Might there have been other value grounds than status from birth/social-group that governed the burial of certain persons?
