The Bronze Age cemetery of Khuzhir-Nuge XIV (KN XIV) is located on the west coast of the Little Sea region of Lake Baikal, near the southern end of Ol'Khon Island and about 3 km southwest of the mouth of the Sarma River. Six seasons of excavation at the site produced archaeological data on 79 graves, including the remains of 89 individuals. The cemetery yields--particularly the archaeological and osteological materials -- have been subjected to a number of analyses. This volume is dedicated to a descriptive account of the entire human osteological collection acquired from the KN XIV graves. The explicit focus is on three main aspects: the condition of the human remains, demographic profile and health indicators, and the effects of fi re on human osteological remains. This information provides the basis for all other studies that have been or will be carried out on this skeletal sample.
