Following a brief introduction to the study of modern and ancient disease, the course focuses on specific diseases and geographic areas. The literature is surveyed and lecture-discussions cover topics such as tuberculosis, cancer and ancient Egypt, emphasizing the effects of environment and culture on the evolution of disease patterns and health care systems. (This course is a follow up to Anth 158/458, a general introductory course in paleopathology, but 158 is not a prerequisite).
