ZUNIGA THAYER, Rodrigo  and  SUBY, Jorge. Entheseal changes in human skeletal remains from Argentina: Current knowledge and future prospects. Rev Arg Antrop Biol [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.2, pp.1-12. ISSN 1514-7991.

Analysis of entheseal changes was included during the last decade as part of bioarchaeological research from different regions of Argentina. This paper presents a synthesis of the main results achieved so far in the study of entheseal changes of archaeological human remains from Argentina. The most recent research takes into consideration the most current knowledge. However, three aspects have to be taken into account: 1) the different recording methodologies; 2) the recognition and control of the multiple biological factors involved in entheseal changes, including body mass, body size, and the diaphyseal robusticity, in addition to sex and age; and 3) the multifactorial interpretation of the results. Local progress is discussed and future prospects are proposed, considering theoretical and methodological issues. Rev Arg Antrop Biol 21(2), 2019. doi:10.24215/18536387e003

Keywords : musculoskeletal stress markers; bioarchaeology; physical activity.
