Innovation in methodology will continue to be important in analysis, and new kinds of information will be gleaned from these techniques These methods will become increasingly more advanced and provide new directions for the interpretation of the assemblages It is also imperative that researchers strive to account for all taphonomic processes and causes of fragmentation as these data have proven to be excellent in assisting interpretation of mortuary practices and cultural reconstructions Furthermore, the contributions from the field of zooarchaeology should be recognized as valuable assets to commingled analysis Having at least minimal exposure to zooarchaeological analysis and techniques could greatly assist bioarchaeologists as they assess MNI and taphonomy of commingled assemblages Analysis of commingled human remains provides extensive biological data yet interpretation of cultural practices and values is not always a priority for researchers We recommend that researchers take a biocultural approach incorporating multiple disciplines so that social aspects of a population may be better understood Bioarchaeology as a discipline has moved to be more anthropological and holistic in recent decades; however, analysis of commingled assemblages has taken this approach inconsistently The inclusion of other kinds of data can also be valuable to interpretation Specifically, ethnographic comparisons and linguistic evidence could provide additional data to prompt new theoretical models It is our hope that this volume pushes bioarchaeologists and archaeologists to recognize the value of commingled and disarticulated human remains, particularly when more contextual information is available Numerous commingled assemblages exist in repositories across the world and have remained unanalyzed due to misconceptions that they are too difficult to analyze and are unable to provide valuable data Bioarchaeological method and theory continually evolve to provide better interpretation of past communities As has been discussed in the introductory chapter of this volume, there is no one correct way to analyze commingled assemblages References Appleby, J (2010) Ageing as fragmentation and dis-integration In K Rebay-Salisbury, M L S Sørensen, & J Hughes (Eds.), Body parts and bodies whole: Changing relations and meanings (pp 46–53) New York: Routledge Atici, L (2013) Commingled bone assemblages: Insights from zooarchaeology and taphonomy of a bonebed at Karain B Cave, SW Turkey In A J Osterholtz, K M Baustian, & D L Martin (Eds.), Commingled and disarticulated human remains New York: Springer Boz, B., & Hager, L D (2013) Making sense of social behavior from disturbed and commingled skeletons: A case study from Çatalhưk, Turkey In A J Osterholtz, K M Baustian, & D L Martin (Eds.), Commingled and disarticulated human remains New York: Springer Taking Analyses of Commingled Remains into the Future: Challenges and Prospects 273 Brittain, M., & Harris, O (2010) Enchaining arguments and fragmenting assumptions: Reconsidering the fragmentation debate in archaeology World Archaeology, 42, 581–594 Cauwe, N (2001) Skeletons in motion, ancestors in action: Early Mesolithic collective tombs in southern Belgium Cambridge Archaeological Journal, 11(02), 147–163 doi:10.1017/ S0959774301000087 Chapman, J (2000) Fragmentation in archaeology: People, places and broken objects in the prehistory of southeastern Europe London: Routledge Chapman, J (2010) ‘Deviant’ burials in the neolithic and chalcolithic of central and south eastern Europe In K Rebay-Salisbury, M L S Sørensen, & J Hughes (Eds.), Body parts and bodies whole (pp 30–45) Oxford: Oxbow Books Chapman, J., & Gaydarska, B (2007) Parts and wholes Fragmentation in prehistoric context Oxford: Oxbow Cook, D C (2013) Normal goat or diseased human?
