The Archaeology of Disease Documented in Skeletons

Professor Charlotte Roberts

Disease affects us all during our lives. This lecture will show how archaeological skeletons can inform our understanding of people's health in the past. It will focus on how this is done and why it is important, including recent research on infectious disease. It will show how the deep time perspective that we gain by analysing skeletons from different burial contexts provides us with a better understanding of who we are today.
