Associate Professor Siân Halcrow, a bioarchaeologist with a research focus on infant and child health and disease in the past, will be our speaker. She investigates the effects that the intensification of agriculture had on health in the past, with a regional focus on Southeast Asia.
Her topic for her talk is:
Canaries in the coal mine: Modelling social and environmental change in prehistory
This talk will show the importance of the investigation of health near the start of life in order to answer major questions about our past, It will also show that the study of people in past archaeological contexts shows the intricate relationship between the mother-child and their stories of stress.
