Mari Tõrv has received the Grand Prize in the Estonian national competition for student research. Altogether 496 works from 32 universities were submitted for the contest of 2016.
Tõrv’s thesis, “Persistent Practices: A Multi-Disciplinary Study of Hunter-Gatherer Mortuary Remains from c. 6500-2600 cal. BC, Estonia”, was highly acclaimed by the reviewers and subsequently awarded the prestigious prize.

This research was undertaken in cooperation between the University of Tartu (UT), the Centre for Baltic and Scandinavian Archaeology (ZBSA), and Christian Albrechts University at Kiel (CAU) and supervised by Prof. Avian Kriiska (UT), prof. Berit V. Eriksen (ZBSA and CAU) and Dr. Liv Nilsson Stutz (Emory College of Art and Science, United States).
The main question focused on how was death handled within and among hunter-gatherer communities in present-day Estonia. The study departed from the human remains that were examined by using various methods (archaeothanatology, osteology, isotope studies). Her research cuts across disciplines to provide important insights into mortuary practices and primary identities of hunter-gatherers in Estonia.
