Cremations of the Early Iron Age from Mound 36 at Voulokalyva (ancient Halos) in Thessaly: a bioarchaeological appraisal

Cremations of the Early Iron Age from Mound 36 at Voulokalyva (ancient Halos) in Thessaly: a bioarchaeological appraisal

Through the analysis of the EIA Mound 36 at Voulokalyva
in Thessaly we lay out the complexities involved in
interpreting a context with cremated bones either as a primary
cremation area or as a secondary deposition. We first
provide comparative evidence from sites of this period from
Greece to allow for correlations between contextual parameters
and osseous characteristics to emerge and inform
about the burial practice. We then contrast this evidence to
finds from Mound 36 to demonstrate that its use was multifaceted
and lasted for an extended period of time, most
likely serving as a place of reverence and ancestral cult. Attention
is drawn to similarities between Voulokalyva and
Lefkandi, for which a complex burial program has also
been suggested. The mound comprises inhumations and
cremations of adults and infants, although cremated infant
remains were found only sporadically among the cremated
remains of more mature individuals.
