Now You See Me now you don't - Exploring the identities of young individuals during the Neolithic

Bengtsson, Sophie (2006)

Abstract
This study deals with various ways of defining the identities of children and young individuals found in Neolithic inhumation burials in southern Sweden, with the help of age categories and without using them as an opposite to adults. And young people do exist in the burial material, and can be uncovered in our theories and interpretations, a change of perspective might be all we need. Interpreting identities of individuals through their burial situation is difficult, and ultimately comes down to interpretation, but more important is that we actually try to interpret! The material is vast and the study of children in the past is still in it's cradle, so to speak.
