Laboratory for the analysis of anthropological data
In the laboratory, human skeletal and mummy remains from archaeological excavations from diverse historical periods are examined scientifically. Scientists are investigating here the living and health conditions of people from times past and their adaptation to environmental pressures. Bio-anthropological data such as gender and age at death, anthropometric data and paleo-pathological investigations of diseases help to reconstruct the “biological profile” of earlier populations. Research on skeletal remains makes an important contribution to archaeology and the preservation of our biological heritage.
