This volume provides an in-depth description of Hesban’s necropolis, including an overview of the tomb types and skeletal biology, allowing readers to draw some conclusions about aging, sexing, demographic patterns, pathology, and multiple stress indicators. The authors attempt to investigate whether the people of Hesban used antibiotics analyzing so-called tetracycline-labeled bones and introduce comparative Roman-Byzantine tombs in the Transjordan. The volume includes 29 figures, 85 plates, and 80 tables.

Ibach Jr., Øystein S. LaBianca, Larry A. Mitchel, Paul J. Ray Jr., Leona G. Running, and S. Douglas Waterhouse, among others. The hardcover volumes are highly illustrated and completely indexed.
