Beschrijving Bioarchaeological Interpretations of the Human Past: Local, Regional, and Global: Victims of Ireland's Great Famine

With one million dead, and just as many forced to emigrate, the Irish Famine (1845-52) is among the worst health calamities in history. In the first bioarchaeological study of Great Famine victims, Jonny Geber uses skeletal analysis to tell the story of how and why the Irish Famine decimated the lowest levels of nineteenth century society.
