A peek into the lives of our ancestors through ancient dental calculus

September 16 @ 18:00 - 19:30

Free

Have you ever wondered how much information you scrape off when brushing your teeth? We can learn a lot about past civilisations from humble dental calculus that forms by calcification of our dental plaque. Anything we chew or inhale can leave a trace – various particles are trapped and preserved even after thousands of years. As a result of that, we can study DNA and proteins that survived centuries and learn about the diet, health, and lifestyle of populations that are long gone.

A peek into the lives of our ancestors through ancient dental calculus is part of the #CicloconferenciasSAND#
