Two interesting activates at OFL, the Osteoarchaeological research laboratory, at Stockholm University.
I am sorry to say that I will miss them both.
A while ago I wrote a post about Niko Roumelis whose dissertation will be put to the test at 22 September. His lecture earlier this spring showed that his dissertation will be very interesting. I wish him all the best. His research concerns inflammatory and tumorous diseases in the population from Kirchberg/St. Niedenstein, Germany (13th – 16th century AD). The title is: The Palaeopathology of Kirchberg: Evidence of Deficiency, Inflammatory and Tumorous Disease in a Medieval Rural Population in Hessia, Germany. The abstract is here. The defence will be held at De Geersalen, Geovetenskapens hus, Svante Arrhenius väg 8 A, Stockholm, 10:00 at Stockholm University, the defence will be held in English.
A few days before this Pia Bennike will hold a seminary at OFL under the title: Nutidens sygdomme set i et udviklingsmæssigt aspekt/ Today’s desices seen from an evolutionary point of view. The lecture will be held at OFL the 20 September at 1400.
