master thesis; children in the bronze age

Hi,
I want to write a master thesis in prehistoric archeology on children in the bronze age, as it is a very overlooked theme. My problem is that I am restricted to northern Europe and that especially in Scandinavia there are few, if any, cemeteries and settlements that anthropologically analysed and publicated. Thus I just wanted to take the chance if someone here has some ideas how to tackle the theme or on other themes featuring the bronze age.
Thank you so much for looking at it.

Hi Alf,
That's certainly not my area of knowledge, but Worldcat brings up a handful of theses with a search:

Those theses written about children in other geographic regions seem to focus on burial rites. Might focus on analyses of skeletons, disease diet etc, toys, etc. probably have to look at burials a lot.

Here's an interesting one:

And this one:

This one too, for ideas:

Lots of good stuff in the bibliography, including this:

Kamp, Kathryn. 2001. Where have all the children gone? The archaeology of childhood.
Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory 8, no. 1: 1-29.


Anyway, I'm done! Good luck with it!
