I have also been a substitute teacher for several band lessons within Schuylkill County.
I completed three months of field school in Romania focusing on Adult Osteology and Palaeopathology. Earned a masters degree in England in Human Osteology and Paleopathology focusing on the interplay between air pollution, nutrition, radical chemistry and incidence on scurvy in pre and post industrial populations. Have full training on all aspects on skeletal biology and disease mechanisms. Currently work as a Deputy Coroner and consulting Forensic Anthropologist for my County.
Several months of field school in Romania and various classes in archaeological theory that focused on analysis of data gathered from an archeological sites and critiques of current methods used in the field. Focusing on bioarchaeology.
Many of the principles used within public health and epidemiology are used in the discipline of Paleopathology because you are looking at how the overall environment and history of a population, within a certain time period, affect the prevalence of diseases observed in a skeletal population from the past. Analyzing this information can reveal trends in the population. For example : A majority of the women in the 1400?s to 1600?s that were dying, happened to be in the 18 to 25 age group. This was due to the time period, it is likely that these women were dying as a result of childbirth. Also young children where often found with large amounts of malnutrition markers. There were many factors attributing to this including socioeconomic status, access to resources, etc.
