Osteo-doctoral day for Ylva Telldahl

Ylva Telldahl will do her doctoral defence for her thesis on December 19 at Stockholm University föreläsningssalen, Botaniska institutionen, Lilla Frescativägen 5 at 13:00.

Her thesis is called: Working animals and skeletal lesions. Paleopathology of cattle and horse in Iron Age and medieval Öland, Sweden.

Ylva has concentrated on the relationship between animal husbandry practices and the associated pathological conditions using methods such as osteometric analysis, conventional radiographic and bone mineral study, as well as incorporated molecular analysis.

The material used was excavated (1964-1974) at Eketorp ringfort on Öland. The fort was used during the Iron Age and early Middle Ages, ca 300–1300 AD and from the Skedemosse wetland site that was excavated in the early 60’s.  This site is a ritual site where weapons, animals, coins and other valuables was offered to the gods, 200-500 AD.

Theoretical osteological work shop

This Saturday I’ll attend a theoretical osteological work shop at the Osteological research laboratory, Stockholm University with the title: Att stå på flera ben (To stand on several bones).

The work shop will be led by Ph.D. Anna Källén and Ph.D. Ing‐Marie Back Danielsson who will address different aspects concerning different social contexts such as genus and ethnicity, critical perspectives.

It’s always interesting to meet other osteologists and to get forums for discussions about osteology and methods.

I will tweet during the workshop from ca 10.30 local time #ostworkshop
