Visiting Investigator / 04 April - 26 June 2018

The main objective of my visit was to analyze markers of occupational stress in human bones from Mesolithic and Neolithic periods. For that purpose I got trained in the Coimbra Method to register entheseal changes and I have also learned new methods such as how to get periosteal mouldings of diaphyses to access geometric properties of long bones and to measure the rotational efficiency of the radius and humerus.
