About this book

Recent developments in the analysis of biological material can now be applied to historical specimens to reveal the activities and environments of individuals who lived hundreds or thousands of years ago. This book covers a range of themes, from survival and reproduction to the evidence for environmental and nutritional effects on growth and the mobility of past populations.
