Abstract

Dental metric variation is a vehicle for investigating the biological structure of burials at mission San Pedro y San Pablo de Patale (8LE152). Analysis of burial patterns at this early-seventeenth-century Apalachee mission suggests that the carefully maintained row structure of graves within the cemetery represent family burial plots (Jones, Hann, and Scarry 1991). Jones and colleagues additionally identified burials that were archaeologically differentiated from normative burial practices. The research presented in this paper addresses the kin structure hypothesis and estimates the affinity of atypical burials in reference to the corpus of the Patale congregation. Disparity in dental profile may suggest a Spanish, mestizo, or nonlocal indigenous biological affinity for such individuals.
