  • Cutting edge interdisciplinary research from a diverse range of specialists provides an innovative approach to evolutionary medicine
  • Each chapter addresses three fundamental questions: How does this research contribute to the understanding of the evolution of health and disease? How does palaeopathology offer a unique perspective or new understanding of the topic? How can this knowledge contribute to modern clinical research and medicine?
