In this episode, we talk to Dr. Sharon DeWitte, a bioarchaeologist and Associate Professor at the University of South Carolina. We talk about health improvements after Black Death in London, feminist bioarchaeology, and secular trends in age a menarche in mortuary remains.

She has a new article in early view in AJHB called “Stress, sex, and plague: Patterns of developmental stress and survival in pre- and post-Black Death London” (early view 26 Oct 2017).
