Comparing Apples and Oranges: New Publication by SAFS Staff and Students


Groundbreaking research by SAFS Staff and Students has just been published in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology ( says Julia Beaumont.

This new paper is the result of combining the work of both academics and masters students from Bradford over many years. The skeletal collection from Raunds Furnells, curated in BARC, has yielded information which has been used in many papers and publications, and this time has allowed us a window into the maternal and infant health during the third trimester of pregnancy, which has implications for modern children.

This was supported both by the University of Bradford and a NERC grant for the micro-CT scans carried out in Aberdeen which you can see in the image.

The image shows a MicroCT scan of 5 year old Anglo-Saxon maxilla and mandible (from Raunds 5349) created using a Bruker/Skyscan 1173.
