Reconstructing Patterns of Health and Dietary Change in Irish Prehistoric Populations.

Health and dietary differences are an important aspect of the relationship between a population and its environment. This study concerns the human skeletal remains of 391 individuals from the prehistoric periods in Ireland, and attempts to identify indicators of physiological stress that will contribute to the reconstruction of health and dietary status of these people. The lack of such palaeoanthropological studies in Ireland make this research significant for further archaeological interpretations of these population groups.
