How many specimens do I need? Sampling error in geometric morphometrics: testing the sensitivity of means and variances in simple randomized selection experiments
Using resampling methods and sensitivity analyses based on randomized subsamples, sampling error in horse teeth from several modern and fossil populations is assessed and indicates that mean centroid size is highly accurate; even when sample size is small, errors are generally considerably smaller than differences among populations.
A geometric morphometric re-evaluation of the use of dental form to explore differences in horse (Equus caballus) populations and its potential zooarchaeological application

It is shown that periodic drug treatments that lead to the elimination of directly transmitted diseases may fail to do so in the case of human pathogens with an environmental reservoir and mechanisms through which the environment can influence the dynamics of poverty via disease feedbacks are presented.
Modern analogy, cultural theory and experimental replication: a merging point at the cutting edge of archaeology
- K. Seetah
- 1 March 2008
The case is made for a degree of standardization to be incorporated into the recording of butchery data and for the integration of evidence from the analysis of cut marks and tool signatures and the use of modern analogy and cultural theory as a means of improving the interpretation of cut-mark data.
Potential osteoarchaeological evidence for riding and the military use of horses at Malbork Castle, Poland
The paper explores interpretations of two sets of pathological horse vertebrae identified during analyses of animal bones from recent excavations at the castle at Malbork in northern Poland (formerly…

A ‘long-fuse domestication’ of the horse? Tooth shape suggests explosive change in modern breeds compared with extinct populations and living Przewalski’s horses
The findings indicate that the pace of change during domestication may vary even within the same structure with shape, but not size, suggesting a ‘long-fuse’ model of phenotypic modification, where an initial lengthy period of invariance is followed by an explosive increase in the Phenotypic change.
