Biological Anthropology

ERA's biological anthropology team is prepared for any project in this area of activity, whether related to construction projects and land-use planning or regarding planned research. Due to the scope of the interventions, in geographical and chronological terms, we contribute to the knowledge about the biological and cultural aspects of ancient populations.

The specialised observation of an individual's skeleton makes it possible to ascertain multiple aspects of their life history, such as gender, age, eating and oral hygiene habits, growth problems or illnesses. If this analysis expands to a statistically significant and representative sample, it is possible to take a population approach and analyse aspects such as palaeodemographics and palaeoepidemiology.
