5000 Years of Death and Disease

Covering 5000 years of death and disease we aim to provide you with an overview of life in prehistoric and historic Britain. Seven short talks will give you an insight into people's experience of life before modern medicine and hands-on workshops will provide an opportunity to see the effects of disease and injury on the human skeleton, while animal bones will provide insight into past diets.

We look forward to welcoming you to this free event hosted by the Department of Archaeology, Durham University on Saturday 31st July 2010, 10:00 am-4:00 pm. Please note that lectures will take place in the Geography Building (see map), Lecture Theatre W309, while tea/coffee breaks, practical sessions and lunch will be in the nearby Archaeology Building. This building is fully wheelchair accessible, while regrettably wheelchair access to the lecture theatre is currently not available.
