From Murder to Miscarriage- the tales our bodies tell from beyond the grave. Discovering the lives of our ancestors through the scientific study of skeletons, and burial sites.  Fascinating talk by Caomihe Tobin

From Murder to Miscarriage- the tales our bodies tell from beyond the grave. This talk will introduce the audience to the subject of osteoarchaeology, itself a sub-discipline of archaeology. Human remains are often recovered unexpectedly in both rural and urban settings. Careful analysis of the bone can provide fascinating information regarding the individual’s lifestyle and that of the wider community. Identifying the diseases, traumas, diet and life expectancy of past populations provides a richer understanding of the real lives our ancestors lived.

She has worked on rural, urban and wetland sites ranging from the Mesolithic to Post Medieval periods.
