Women at Work: A Bioarcheological Exploration of Women’s Health in Medieval and post-Medieval Denmark with Dr. Amy Scott
Health in the past, as much as today, is dictated by a variety of internal and external factors that influence our physical and psychological well-being. Health differences between the sexes informs a significant portion of archaeological work, as researchers focus on the relationship between biology, culture and sex. This talk will focus on health status in Danish women during the medieval and post-medieval period through an exploration of skeletal change and the interaction between biological inevitabilities and cultural shifts in the status of women post-Reformation. All are welcome. Please bring lunch!
