Lecture at Sir John Deane's College, Northwich with Shirley Curtis-Summers
Life in the age of Richard III: a bioarchaeological perspective
Using scientific evidence from the skeletal remains of Richard III, this lecture will build a picture of past lifeways in the middle ages. Key case studies will be presented in bioarchaeology (how we identify and recreate evidence of diet, health, trauma and pathology). We will analyse the skeletal trauma from Richard III and the Battle of Towton skeletons, investigate monastic dieting and fasting practices, and consider diet and disease from the medieval perspective. Note that images of human remains will be shown in this lecture.
