Bioarchaeology: Reconstructing Past Lifeways

Medieval health strongly relied on herbal remedies, humoral theories and physicians performing gruesome procedures. Analysing human skeletal remains, from archaeological sites can provide a valuable insight into the diets and diseases of past people and the understanding of their bygone 'lifeways'.

Dr. Shirley Curtis-Summers is passionate about the wonderful world of diet, disease and trauma and will talk about her research into reconstructing the way of life of medieval people by using osteological and stable isotope methods.
