Typo-chronology is frequently used in funerary archaeology for dating graves. The method concerns the elements that characterise burials : body positions, coffins, rituals, grave markers, grave construction and so on. Other approaches and methods are also associated, such as radiocarbon dating, contents assemblages, stratigraphy, etc.
The typo-chronological references used today are sometimes outdated, while at the same time recent advances in research have considerably renewed the documentation in mortuary archaeology. It was then time for the Groupe d’Anthropologie et d’Archéologie Funéraire (Gaaf) to explore and suggest new references that could be used by archaeologists and anthropologists. They apply to inhumation burials, and for periods ranging from prehistory to the contemporary period.
This volume brings together 46 contributions, grouped by broad geographical areas, and from papers given at the 11th Gaaf meeting held in Tours from the 3rd to the 5th of June 2019.
You will find in the link, the order form and all the information about the book as well as the summary (in French).
