Description

This text illustrates how the techniques of palaeopathology and archaeology are used to identify injury and disease patterns in past human populations. The authors employ a biocultural approach, stressing the importance of using both the physical evidence, which is obvious, and the cultural proof, which is often less clear, in a multidisciplinary approach to diseases in people who lived in the past. The book is intended as a reference source to provide historical background and cultural data on disease and the history of medicine in antiquity.
