Diet, death and disease:
Free Bone Workshop
Diseases such as dental cavities, scurvy and gout all leave changes on the skeleton. Come and explore the links between diet and health in the Middle Ages. A short introductory talk is followed by a lab session where you will be encouraged to examine medieval skeletons with evidence of diet-related pathology. See for yourself how what we eat affects our bodies!
