Reconstruction of a historical genealogy by means of STR analysis and Y-haplotyping of ancient DNA. (1/48)

Archaeological excavations in St Margaretha's church at Reichersdorf, Germany, in 1993 led to the discovery of eight skeletons, so far assumed to be of the Earls of Konigsfeld, who used the church as a family sepulchre over a period of seven generations from 1546 to 1749. DNA-based sex testing and analysis of autosomal short tandem repeat systems (STR) was carried out to confirm the assumption of kinship. Since five of the individuals were determined as males, analysis of Y-specific STRs seemed feasible. A comparison of Y-haplotypes revealed that one individual could not be linked to the Konigsfeld patrilineage, an observation supported by autosomal STR evidence. Two individuals typed as females posed an identification problem, since supposedly only male members of the family were buried in St Margaretha's. Nevertheless, these individuals could tentatively be identified as members of the House of Konigsfeld through genetic fingerprinting.  (+info)

The eye injury of King Philip II and the skeletal evidence from the royal tomb II at Vergina. (2/48)

The Royal Tomb II was discovered in Vergina, Greece, in 1977. It contained a male skeleton and a rich array of grave goods. Evidence of trauma supposedly in the orbital bones of the skull has been thought to correspond to an eye injury that King Philip II is historically known to have suffered. However, reexamination of the orbital morphology showed no evidence of such pathology. Therefore, the skeleton does not belong to Philip II. New skeletal evidence shows that the skeleton belongs to King Philip III Arrhidaeus. In this case, the tomb may well contain some of the paraphernalia of Alexander the Great.  (+info)

Peopling the past: new perspectives on the ancient Maya. (3/48)

The new direction in Maya archaeology is toward achieving a greater understanding of people and their roles and their relations in the past. To answer emerging humanistic questions about ancient people's lives Mayanists are increasingly making use of new and existing scientific methods from archaeology and other disciplines. Maya archaeology is bridging the divide between the humanities and sciences to answer questions about ancient people previously considered beyond the realm of archaeological knowledge.  (+info)

An additional "R": remembering the animals. (4/48)

Relationships inevitably develop between humans and animals, regardless of the function or use of the animal partners. The need to recognize the existence of these human-animal bonds, as well as acknowledge the use of the animals, is widespread. Religious memorial services for animals in certain areas of the world provide an historical basis for such acknowledgment activities. The diversity of sacred and secular approaches to memorializing or acknowledging animals is illustrated by representative examples of such events. The need to establish such events, particularly in academic and research settings, is emphasized. The pros and cons of developing and establishing acknowledgment activities in addition to the benefits of implementing such events are discussed.  (+info)

Lower Pliocene hominid remains from Sterkfontein. (7/48)

Cosmogenic aluminum-26 and beryllium-10 burial dates of low-lying fossiliferous breccia in the caves at Sterkfontein, South Africa, show that associated hominid fossils accumulated in the Lower Pliocene. These dates indicate that the skeleton StW 573 and newly discovered specimens from Jacovec Cavern have much the same age: approximately 4 million years. These specimens are thus of an age similar to Australopithecus anamensis from East Africa.  (+info)

From dust to dust: ethical and practical issues involved in the location, exhumation, and identification of bodies from mass graves. (8/48)

There are many potential purposes served by the investigation of human remains: criminal fact-finding, archaeological exploration, forensic research, and others. This paper focuses on the identification of remains from mass graves to find missing persons. The primary goal of such efforts is to honor the memory of the dead by bringing closure to living family members, thus supporting the human rights of both the living and the deceased. Cultures, customs, political, and interpersonal specifics will vary, but that singular goal should remain the central guiding principle. This article presents ethical and practical issues resulting from efforts to locate, exhume, and identify the remains of mass fatalities.  (+info)

The Epipaleolithic Natufian culture (/nəˈtuːfiən/) existed from around 12,500 to 9,500 BC in the Levant, a region in the Eastern Mediterranean. The culture was unusual in that it supported a sedentary or semi-sedentary population even before the introduction of agriculture. The Natufian communities may be the ancestors of the builders of the first Neolithic settlements of the region, which may have been the earliest in the world.[citation needed] Natufians founded Jericho which may be the oldest city in the world. Some evidence suggests deliberate cultivation of cereals, specifically rye, by the Natufian culture, at Tell Abu Hureyra, the site of earliest evidence of agriculture in the world. Generally, though, Natufians exploited wild cereals. Animals hunted included gazelles. According to Christy G. Turner II, there is archaeological and physical anthropological evidence for a relationship between the modern Semitic-speaking populations of the Levant, Persian Gulf and the Natufians. However ...

The information required for adequate diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of cancers is so complex that a panel of measurements, used in sum, may provide the best answers. The concept is embodied in SELDI-TOF mass spectrometric (MS) peptide profiling, an emerging technique for serum based cancer detection. Even though SELDI has thus far only produced low complexity spectra, the patterns, when analyzed as groups, have the potential to create learning algorithms with diagnostic accuracies as good as or better than conventional biomarkers. We have developed a system to capture peptides on magnetic reversed-phase beads, followed by MALDI-TOF MS, to yield increasingly complex, yet very reproducible patterns. This has clear advantages, as more displayed peptides provide more opportunity to select unique patterns (barcodes) for cancer subtypes and stages, and to predict and monitor clinical outcome. Extreme care has also been taken to standardize specimen collection, handling and storage to avoid the ...
BACKGROUND: Recent development of novel technologies paved the way for quantitative proteomics. One of the most important among them is iTRAQ, employing isobaric tags for relative or absolute quantitation. Despite large progress in technology development, still many challenges remain for derivation and interpretation of quantitative results. One of these challenges is the consistent assignment of peptides to proteins. RESULTS: We have developed Peptide Profiling Guided Identification of Proteins (PPINGUIN), a statistical analysis workflow for iTRAQ data addressing the problem of ambiguous peptide quantitations. Motivated by the assumption that peptides uniquely derived from the same protein are correlated, our method employs clustering as a very early step in data processing prior to protein inference. Our method increases experimental reproducibility and decreases variability of quantitations of peptides assigned to the same protein. Giving further support to our method, application to a type 2 ...

In 1987, the remains of an 18-22-year-old woman, now dubbed Ava, were discovered at Achavanich in Caithness in the north of Scotland. The site was excavated by the Highland Regional Council Archaeology Unit, and the burial was later dated to the Middle Bronze Age. Although the discovery is interesting, and one aspect of it has been hotly debated by researchers, it was soon forgotten by most people. Now, an archaeologist is working to change that. Archaeologist Maya Hoole hopes to renew public interest in the burial from about 3,700 years ago. As she told the BBC , Like many others, Im sure, I find skeletal remains completely mesmerising. On Hooles website, the Achavanich Beaker Burial Project , she explains her goal further: I had one objective when I started this project: to change our understanding of this site and, over the last year, have been trying to make this happen. Hoole believes that a renewed interest and modern technology could make this happen, revealing much more about the ...
We compared the burial efficiency of organic carbon (buried OC: deposited OC) in a diverse set of 27 different sediments from 11 lakes, focusing on the potential effects of organic matter source, oxygen exposure, and protective sorption of OC onto mineral surfaces. Average OC burial efficiency was high (mean 48%), and it was particularly high in sediments receiving high input of allochthonous organic matter (mean 67%). Further, OC burial efficiency was strongly negatively related to the oxygen exposure time, again particularly so in sediments receiving high allochthonous loads. On the other hand, OC burial efficiency was not related to the mineral surface area, which was used as a proxy of the sorption capacity of the mineral phase for OC. The high OC burial efficiency in many lake sediments can thus be attributed to the frequent and significant input of allochthonous organic matter to lakes, as well as to a strong dependence of OC burial efficiency on oxygen exposure time. This study ...

THESSALONIKI, GREECE-An anthropological team investigating cremated remains found in a royal tomb in Vergina, Greece, has claimed that the remains belong to King Philip II, father of Alexander the Great, and an unknown woman warrior. Theodore Antikas, head of the Art-Anthropological research team of the Vergina excavation, suggests that she may have been the daughter of Scythian King Ateas. The tomb was one of three excavated from the same mound in the late 1970s by Greek archaeologist Manolis Andronikos. This tomb, known as Tomb II, had been intact, and it contained silver and bronze vessels, gold wreaths, weapons, armor, and two gold larnakes, or caskets. Antikas told Discovery News that the identification of the middle-aged, male skeleton was based upon marks on the bones. The individual suffered from frontal and maxillary sinusitis that might have been caused by an old facial trauma, he said. Philip II was blinded when his right eye was hit with an arrow during the siege of Methone in 354 ...

Post mortem or even normal changes during life occurring in major gut bacterial populations are not known. We investigated Bacteroides sp., Bifidobacterium sp., Clostridium leptum, Clostridium coccoides, Streptococcus sp., Lactobacillus sp. and Enterobacteriacaea ratios in 7 fecal samples from healthy volunteers and in 61 autopsies rectum and cecum samples and studied the effect of post mortem time using quantitative real-time PCR. Bacterial ratios in stool samples from volunteers and rectum samples from autopsy cases were similar and did not change significantly up to 5 days post mortem. In cecum, significant post mortem time-dependent differences were observed in ratios of Bacteroides sp. (p = 0.014) and Lactobacillus sp. (p = 0.024). Our results showed that ratios of Bacteroides sp., Bifidobacterium sp., Clostridium leptum, Clostridium coccoides, Streptococcus sp., Lactobacillus sp. and Enterobacteriacaea can be investigated in autopsy rectum samples up to 5 days after death.
Forty-eight castrated F-2 offspring of Pietrain and Large White pigs were allocated to a 3 x 2 factorial design in order to study the interactive effect of halothane genotype (NN, Nn and nn) and pre-slaughter treatment [referred to as Experimental (EXP) and Commercial-like (COL) conditions; the latter combining short transportation, mixing unfamiliar pigs and slaughtering shortly after transport] on muscle post mortem changes and meat quality. The pigs were slaughtered over 4 days. Pre-slaughter glycogen depletion in M. longissimus lumborum (LL) was greater in the nn pigs, compared with the two other genotypes. Lactate accumulation post mortem in LL muscle was greater and the pH value at 40 min post mortem was lower in nn compared with NN pigs. Nit pigs were close to nn pigs for lactate accumulation and showed intermediate pH values in the LL muscle. In the M. semimembranosus (SM), NN and Nn pigs showed the same rate of post mortem changes, as evidenced by similar glycogen, lactate, creatine

In this study, redox-dependent phosphorus (P) recycling and burial at 6 sites in the Baltic Sea is investigated using a combination of porewater and sediment analyses and sediment age dating (Pb-210 and Cs-117). We focus on sites in the Kattegat, Danish Straits and Baltic Proper where present-day bottom water redox conditions range from fully oxygenated and seasonally hypoxic to almost permanently anoxic and sulfidic. Strong surface enrichments of Fe-oxide bound P are observed at oxic and seasonally hypoxic sites but not in the anoxic basins. Reductive dissolution of Fe-oxides and release of the associated P supports higher sediment-water exchange of PO4 at hypoxic sites (up to similar to 800 mu mol P m(-2) d(-1)) than in the anoxic basins. This confirms that Fe-bound P in surface sediments in the Baltic acts as a major internal source of P during seasonal hypoxia, as suggested previously from water column studies. Most burial of P takes place as organic P. We find no evidence for significant ...
Elizabeth Alesi supervised the excavation of a cyst grave discovered in the layer directly beneath the Parthian building foundations. The burial in locus 124025 consisted of a large storage jar and smaller pot that were placed mouth to mouth to form the coffin. This style of burial is identical to burials discovered at Tell Bweid (downstream approximately 4 km. from Tuneinir) by Dr. Antoine Sulieman from the Aleppo Museum. The burials at Tell Bweid were definitely from the Neo-Assyrian Period; the jar burial in locus 124025 may be Neo-Assyrian. We have not excluded the possibility that the burial is from the Persian Period ...
Too bad that the camera seemed to autofoucus on the mesh containment early in the video. What happens to the corpse is thereby hidden and left to the viewers imagination.

IN-DEPTH FEATURES Burial in Jerusalem: The Har Menuchos Cemetery. by M. Samsonowitz. Part III. For two thousand years, it has been the dream and hope of many individuals to be buried in Jerusalem. This is a report of the situation today.. If Bituach Leumi pays only the burial costs, who is funding the cemetery development?. As you may have guessed, its the good Jews abroad who want to be buried in Israel whose payments cover this expense. The Chevra Kadishas market grave plots to Jews abroad, and they charge a not inconsiderable price for them. The standard cost for ones makom bechayim is $5,000 for the karka, and another $2,000-2,500 for burial costs. Add to this another $3,500-5,000 for transportation, and being buried in Jerusalem is $11,000. The total cost is not unreasonable in comparison to burial in many places abroad, and the gemora says that anyone buried in Israel has a special kaporoh. $10,000 is also not that much in comparison to the savings and pensions that many people have ...
In general, yes. CPSIA defines childrens products as those products intended primarily for use by children 12 and under. Accordingly, these products would be subject to the lead limit for paint and surface coatings at 16 CFR part 1303 (and the 90 ppm lead paint limit effective August 14, 2009) as well as the new lead limits for childrens products containing lead (600 ppm lead limit effective February 10, 2009, and 300 ppm lead limit effective August 14, 2009). If the childrens products use printing inks or materials which actually become a part of the substrate, such as the pigment in a plastic article, or those materials which are actually bonded to the substrate, such as by electroplating or ceramic glazing, they would be excluded from the lead paint limit. However, these products are still considered to be lead containing products irrespective of whether such products are excluded from the lead paint limit and are subject to the lead limits for childrens products containing lead. For lead ...
Since 2012, the Université libre de Bruxelles has implemented a research program with the goal of locating and inventorying the underwater heritage of Lake Titicaca, said Delaere. Our team has systematically surveyed around the islands and reefs in the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca.. The Kakaya Archipelago is west of Challapata Bay in the eastern shore of Lake Titicaca and is a series of a main island and three small ones. Kakaya reef is the last islet of the small chain and is covered in bird droppings.. The divers retrieved the box intact although currents had eroded one side. The box was tightly sealed, but not watertight. Resting in the box, beneath the silt that had filtered in, was the spondylus shell llama and the rolled gold foil.. One indication that these boxes contain artifacts valuable enough for offerings, beside the gold foil, is the spondylus shell llama. The closest location where the Inca could obtain this spiny oyster shell was in warm coastal ocean waters off the coast ...
Burial insurance is actually not a type of life insurance, but rather a purpose for life insurance. When you get a burial insurance policy, you will not find BURIAL INSURANCE prominently stamped on the front of the policy.. The Insurance Information Institute refers to burial insurance as :. a whole life insurance policy with a death benefit of from $5,000 to $25,000. As its nickname implies, people buy this type of policy to provide money for funeral and burial costs for themselves and/or family members. It is possible to buy a policy after answering a few health-related questions on the application and with no medical exam.. Premiums are payable weekly or monthly. The premium is usually collected at the policy owners home or workplace, and the premium is usually a small round number, such as $2 or $3 per week; the death benefit is whatever that premium will buy given the insureds current age. For example, a $3 per week premium might buy a $6,000 death benefit for a 36-year-old man or an ...
Second, the burial has not been C14 dated yet, so can fall anywhere within the millennia of burials at the cemetery, but lets assume the excavators are right that this is Late Antiquity (so, the early end of the range). Excavators insist that the prone burial is related to an act of punishment. While this may be true in later periods, when we see the so-called vampire skeletons with possible evidence of treatment of deviance in the burial record, this is Late Antiquity, not long after the height of the Roman Empire. And in the Roman Empire, we have evidence of subadults being buried face-down with artifacts, and these cases are not interpreted as evidence of deviance or punishment. Although prone burial is rare in Roman cemeteries, its not so rare among children as to suggest deviance. Until there is better dating and therefore better burial comparanda, I cannot yet buy the explanation of prone burial as punishment ...

Soil Burial Study of Palm Kernel Shell-Filled Natural Rubber Composites: The Effect of Filler Loading and Presence of Silane Coupling Agent. Shuhairiah Daud, Hanafi Ismail,* and Azhar Abu Bakar. Palm kernel shell (PKS) was incorporated into natural rubber composites at loadings ranging from 0 to 20 phr using a laboratory-size two-roll mill. A soil burial study of the PKS-filled NR composites as a function of filler loading and silane coupling agent incorporation was then conducted over a period of six months. The degraded composites were evaluated by means of tensile testing. To study the degradation of the composites after soil burial, their morphological properties were observed by scanning electron microscopy. Prior to the soil burial tests, as the PKS filler loading increased, the tensile strength and elongation at break of the composites both with and without the silane coupling agent decreased, while the tensile moduli (M100 and M300) increased. At identical filler loading values, the ...

We analyzed the unsaturation ratio (U k/37 ) of long-chain ketones-a molecular sea-surface temperature (SST) indicator-concentrations of carbonate and organic carbon in sediments from Site 846 in the eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean. Based on an isotopic age model for the composite depth section of 0-46 m below seafloor and on estimates of sediment density, accumulation rates of these biogenic compounds were calculated. Our combined temperature and biogenic flux record traces conditions at the origin of the South Equatorial Current over the last 1.3 m.y. S STs have fluctuated considerably over the interval studied. A long trend of gradual decrease from 24°C at 1.3 Ma ends between 500 and 400 Ka, when lowest values of 19°C were reached. Since this time, the temperature data indicate a warming trend to the Holocene modulated by high-amplitude variation (19° to 27°C). The inversion of the trend between 400 and 500 Ka coincides with maximal accumulation rates of carbonate, which since then have ...
Physician-coded verbal autopsy (PCVA) is the most widely used method to determine causes of death (CODs) in countries where medical certification of death is uncommon. Computer-coded verbal autopsy (CCVA) methods have been proposed as a faster and cheaper alternative to PCVA, though they have not been widely compared to PCVA or to each other. We compared the performance of open-source random forest, open-source tariff method, InterVA-4, and the King-Lu method to PCVA on five datasets comprising over 24,000 verbal autopsies from low- and middle-income countries. Metrics to assess performance were positive predictive value and partial chance-corrected concordance at the individual level, and cause-specific mortality fraction accuracy and cause-specific mortality fraction error at the population level. The positive predictive value for the most probable COD predicted by the four CCVA methods averaged about 43% to 44% across the datasets. The average positive predictive value improved for the top three most

The two children whose skeletons are shown in this photograph were both under 10 years of age, and were probably buried at the same time. An earlier burial of a baby was found at a slightly lower level in the space between them. Archaeologists found these burials in the floor of a house at Çatalhöyük, a Neolithic agricultural settlement in Turkey that was continuously occupied between 8000 BCE and 6400 BCE. Many of the settlements hundreds of houses contained multiple burials. The pits, which were sealed with white plaster lids, lay beneath raised platforms where people slept and worked, living close to their ancestors. Some of the houses were ritually closed and collapsed upon the death of an important family member. According to analysis of skeletons found at Çatalhöyük, life expectancy averaged 34 years for men and 28 years for women.. ...

We report genome-wide ancient DNA from 44 ancient Near Easterners ranging in time between ~12,000-1,400 BCE, from Natufian hunter-gatherers to Bronze Age farmers. We show that the earliest populations of the Near East derived around half their ancestry from a Basal Eurasian lineage that had little if any Neanderthal admixture and that separated from other non-African lineages prior to their separation from each other. The first farmers of the southern Levant (Israel and Jordan) and Zagros Mountains (Iran) were strongly genetically differentiated, and each descended from local hunter-gatherers. By the time of the Bronze Age, these two populations and Anatolian-related farmers had mixed with each other and with the hunter-gatherers of Europe to drastically reduce genetic differentiation. The impact of the Near Eastern farmers extended beyond the Near East: farmers related to those of Anatolia spread westward into Europe; farmers related to those of the Levant spread southward into East Africa; ...

I have not said that Macedon used the Babylonian calendar, quite clearly the months have different names, but I do think they had adopted the superior form of intercalation introduced by Dareios; the evidence is late (the synchronism at Alexanders death) and circumstantial since we have no fully dated documents before Alexander, so the opposite case is equally unevidenced. It is a matter of balancing the probabilities. Macedonia was under Persian influence if not rule (Dareios names them as part of his empire at Behistun) right about the time that the calendric reforms were being put into practice (these are the Metonic cycle not the Kallippic) contrariwise we have a reform of Alexander that is not mentioned by any Alexander historian, is clearly instituted at Athens (the cycle begins at the start of the Athenian year not the Macedonian) and is only suggested by a very late source, Simplicius. Much is made of the fact that he gives a title to the work he says Alexander had translated (as far ...

Unfortunately, many eligible beneficiaries are initially denied these benefits when a claim is filed. Applicants should be aware that the decisions for these claims can be appealed by veterans and their eligible family members. The process for appeals generally begins with the Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA) in Washington, D.C. Once a claim has been filed and consequently denied, the veteran or other potentially eligible beneficiary has sixty days to file for an appeal with their regional office. In order to do so, it is necessary to complete a Notice of Disagreement (NOD), and veterans have the option of retaining an attorney at the NOD stage.. The Department of Veterans Affairs benefits claims and appeals process can be complicated. If a veteran or a veterans family members have received a denial of benefits to which they believe they are entitled, it is in their best interest to contact an attorney who is familiar with veterans benefits to assist them with the application and appeals process. ...
