Bones that talk

Bones that talk

The archaeological excavations allow us to know how the cities of antiquity were and how their inhabitants lived, thanks to the remains of buildings and a multitude of objects. But what happens when archaeologists find bone remains?

Studying bones, forensic anthropologists can know if it is an animal, a man or a woman, also how high an individual was, how many years had when he died, etc. In addition, you can know if he did a physical effort or if he had suffered certain illnesses.

Sometimes, objects that are part of burial goods are also found in the burials, and even currencies have been found in the mouths of the deceased. Do you want to know what was the meaning of this ritual? Do you want to do scientific researchers for a while and help us classify the remains of the necropolis (cemetery) of Baetulo?
