The 81st Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists (2012)

Session 28. Working nine to five: the future of activity-related stress. Invited Poster Symposium. Chair: Charlotte Y. Henderson and Francisca Alves Cardoso

Friday Afternoon, Forum Suite Add to calendar

Entheseal changes (formerly called musculoskeletal stress markers or MSM) have been widely used to record activity-related stress. However, recent research is shedding new light on the subject: the simplistic one-dimensional link between activity and entheseal changes is being questioned. New methods are being applied to examine the relationship, including using identified skeletal remains with known occupations, 3-dimensional analysis of the entheses, as well as new visual recording methods. The aim of this symposium is to focus on re-evaluating entheseal changes; to reconsider their potential; to highlight limitations as well as future research directions and to promote discussion.
