Honoring Jane Buikstra's pioneering work in the development of bioarchaeological research, the essays in this volume stem from a symposium held at the annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. Multiple generations of Buikstra's former doctoral students and other colleagues gathered to discuss the impact of her mentorship. The essays are remarkable for their breadth, in terms of both the topics discussed and the geographical range they cover. The contributions highlight the dynamism of bioarchaeology, which owes so much to the strong foundations laid down over the last few decades. The volume documents the degree to which bioarchaeological approaches have become normalized and integrated into anthropological research: bioarchaeology has moved out of the appendix and into the interpretation of archaeological data. New perspectives have emerged, partly in response to theoretical changes within anthropology, but also as a result of the engagement of the broader discipline with bioarchaeology.

Maria Cecilia Lozada is a Peruvian bioarchaeologist who has been conducting archaeological research in the South Central Andes for twenty years. She is currently a research associate in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Chicago. Irish bioarchaeologist Barra O'Donnabhain is currently on the faculty of the Department of Archaeology at University College Cork, and is on the board of directors of the Los Angeles-based Institute for Field Research.
