Abstract and Keywords

The archaeology of childhood challenges the mindset of the student and researcher, both in terms of collected archaeological material, and when they go out into the field to make hypotheses about where the settlements have been in the past, and who the people were who once lived there. In this chapter, the intention is not to present scientific results based on childhood studies over the years. It is to encourage the curiosity of everyone interested in searching for the innermost core of humanity and what it meant to become human in past societies. Different stages of childhood are covered, as well as the changing views of the innocence of children, and distinctiveness from adults.

Keywords: archaeology, history, SSCIP, bioarchaeology, environment
