We reconstruct a ‘biological profile’ of our ancestors.
Gender, age at death, medical records: the secrets of skeletal and mummified remains revealed.
In the Anthropology Lab, we scientifically study human skeletal and mummified remains from archaeological excavations of different historical periods. The scientific teams investigate the living conditions and health of people from past times and their adaptation to environmental stressors. Bioanthropological data, such as sex and age at death, anthropometric data and palaeopathological examinations of diseases help us construct a 'biological profile' of earlier populations. Research on skeletal remains makes an important contribution to archaeology and the preservation of our biological heritage.
