Bioarchaeological data are frequently overlooked, used selectively, and misused by popular writers and the media in characterizing, for example, past patterns of conflict, nutrition related disease, epidemics, massacres, and general health when faced with climate changeMany contemporary topics are frequently misrepresented to non-scholarly audiences and why bioarchaeological data and bioarchaeologists are too infrequently engaged in public representationsBioarchaeologists need more active and engaged professionals to become public intellectuals in order to prevent misconceptions and demonstrate the importance of our research to modern populations.

Current issues such as climate change, droughts, warfare, violence, famine, and the effects of disease are media mainstays and are subjects familiar to bioarchaeologists, many of whom have empirical data and informed viewpoints, both for topical exploration and also for predictions based on human behavior in deep time.
