Sample text

Boldsen and Milner in Chapter 7, “An Epidemiological Approach to Paleopathology,” guide the reader through the perils and requisite premises of interpreting disease beyond its presence in individuals and on to a population level. Their straightforward approach, coupled with many examples, effectively highlights the key role that paleoepidemiology plays in our understanding of disease in the past. Cast in a promising light, Chapter 8, “The Promise, the Problems, and the Future of DNA Analysis in Paleopathology Studies,” by Spigelman, Shin, and Bar-Gal, captures the ways in which DNA analyses have begun to answer questions germane to paleopathology, while simultaneously outlining imperative protocols that must be met in order for the work to provide genuine results.

First, perhaps one could argue that paleopathological research is an a-theoretical endeavor—meaning that there are no underlying assumptions being made or that multiple interpretations of data are not possible. This seems a bit preposterous. e. that pathogenesis does not change over time. We clinically identify the presence of a disease in modern humans, and assert that finding the same indicators on tissue samples from the past indicates that the identical pathogen or disease process was responsible.
