Abstract

Family can be broadly defined as a community of care, cooperation and shared resources. As we move further into the past, however, our ability to observe these relationships becomes blurred. For most of human history, ethnographic and historical documents are lacking; identity and relationships are therefore inferred through the analyses of mortuary practices and evidence of production through artefacts and features. In this study, we examine the unique connection that exists between mother and infant, illustrating how this relationship gives potential insight into lived experiences in the past.
