The Bioarchaeology of Roman Imperialism: A Case Study from the Danube Limes

The Bioarchaeology of Roman Imperialism: A Case Study from the Danube Limes

The Bioarchaeology of Roman Imperialism: A Case Study from the Danube Limes

This seminar will examine two skeletal samples from eastern Austria: one pre-Roman and one Roman period. Using specific skeletal markers, it will investigate how levels of physiological stress differed between and within the samples. Using archaeological and historical information to contextualise these differences, it will explore how social, political and economic factors influenced the health of populations during the Roman period, and how this is relevant to modern societies.

Sam Sammut is a PhD candidate at ANU whose research focuses on the bioarchaeology of Roman-period populations.
