- Explore the ways in which we can use animal bones and plant remains to find out about the foods available, and how they were prepared.
- Find out how people’s diets affected their teeth and bones, and what studying their remains can tell us about the foods they ate.
- Learn how analysing the chemical composition of bone and teeth can tell us so much more about ancient diet than we previously thought possible.
