Goodale Publishes Article in JAA
Assistant Professor of Anthropology Nathan Goodale published an article titled “Population aggregation, residential storage and socioeconomic inequality at Early Bronze Age Numayra, Jordan” in the Journal of Anthropological Archaeology (JAA). The article was co-authored by Meredith S. Chesson, associate professor of anthropology at the University of Notre Dame.
The article documents shifting use of food storage during the Early Bronze Age community of Numayra, Jordan, and the ties to the development of large scale sedentary societies in Southwest Asia.
The research stems from excavations at Numayra in the late 1970s through early 1980s by the Expedition to the Dead Sea Plain project directed by R. Thomas Schaub, professor emeritus at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
