But was she a lady, and what were the circumstances of her burial? This book examines the evidence again with the benefit of modern techniques and it provides a definitive report on more recent investigations at the site carried out in 1997. The twelve chapters include a description of the site and its deposits, dating techniques, faunal remains, human remains, DNA, geology, lithics, ivory, bone and shell and analysis of the ochre.
