It will explore the challenges and possibilities of combining the archaeological, osteoarchaeological and historical record to understand the body and its role in the human past.

We invite archaeologists who also work with historical documents and historians who work with material culture, including physical remains of the body, to share and discuss their research. What can bodily remains tell us about experiences of the body during life?
