Practitioners, Practices and Patients : New Approaches to Medical Archaeology and Anthropology Paperback / softback

Edited by Patricia A. Baker, Gillian Carr

Description

Medical care in the past, and indeed present societies, can be studied in a number of different ways, including palaeopatholoy, palaeobotany, literary evidence, material culture and different medical ideologies and belief systems.

These 15 papers from a conference held at Magdalene College, Cambridge in 2000 explore these diverse forms of interpretation, though largely focusing on material culture aspects.
