My research focus is on ancient human remains as a source of information about past life, specifically of health and disease as this field involves many aspects of life. In the Dietary ROOTS subcluster, this applies to aspects of nutrition, deficiencies, food consumption and subsistence reflected in the skeletal body. My greatest interest is in the early epochs of modern humans, such as the Neolithic and the Bronze Age, but the skeletons “on my desk” stem from different chronological periods across Europe.

Keywords: Human osteology, palaeopathology, bioarchaeology
