Palaeopathology Workshop

[Congrès, colloques, réunions]

du 29 au 30 août 2012

"The first Archaeological Survey of Nubia published its final report just over 100 years ago, drawing to a close one of the largest set of palaeopathological investigations ever carried out. The human remains from this and other such studies during the last century have granted us incredible insights into the lives and deaths of the ancient Nubians and their neighbours to the north, the Egyptians. The skeletons and mummies of these two great civilisations have also helped drive the development of palaeopathology as a discipline. To celebrate this centenary, we invite you to attend a workshop to learn about and discuss the past work, present research, and future direction of human and animal palaeopathology in this region. Plenary lectures at the workshop will be given by Prof. Albert Zink (EURAC Institute), Prof. Don Brothwell (The University of York) and Dr. Derek Welsby (The British Museum)."
