Idade do Ferro, East Yorkshire, Arqueologia da Infância

Resumo

A arqueologia da infância continua amplamente marginalizada para o estudo da Idade do Ferro bretã. Este artigo busca reparar tal situação discutindo como um conjunto de diferenças sociais e noções particulares identitárias foram projetadas nos enterramentos de crianças encontradas em East Yorkshire, uma região famosa por seus extensos cemitérios que abrigam inúmeras inumações. Tanto a morfologia dos enterramentos, como também dados artefactuais e bioarqueológicos são levados em consideração. A discussão apresenta uma (re)avaliação crítica dos dados arqueológicos disponíveis para o estudo de crianças em Yorkshire durante a Idade do Ferro, destacando a possibilidade de uma distinção interna sutil dentro do grupo infantil, por volta da idade de 6 anos.
