Canaries in the coal mine: Modelling social and environmental change in prehistory

This talk will showcase recent research that shows the importance of the investigation of health near the start of life to answer major questions about our past. Here I probe the health effects of the agricultural transition, which saw major negative impacts on past human populations. Using an approach that assesses case studies in diverse regions we find that patterns of health change are regionally specific. Our application of new methods in bioarchaeology (the study of people in past archaeological contexts) show the intricate relationship between the mother-child and their stories of stress.
