Session Infectious Disease and Hygiene in the Neolithic and Bronze Age info
We are pleased to announce session #653 “Infectious Disease and Hygiene in the Neolithic and Bronze Age” taking place at the Annual Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA), August 28-31, 2024, in Rome, Italy.
The session aims to create a platform for discussing the interactions between humans and infectious disease during the Neolithic and Bronze Age from a biosocial perspective. To enhance our overall understanding of pathogen presence, diversity and evolution, as well as human responses to infectious disease during prehistory, we welcome contributions from diverse research fields, including paleopathology, bioarcheology, history and genomics.
If you would like to participate with an oral presentation we kindly invite you to submit your abstract following the instructions on the conference website.
Please note that the deadline for abstract submissions is February 8th.
For more details on the session #653, please see the abstract below.
Do not hesitate to contact us in case you have any questions.
