An emerging material

Battlefields is an interesting source of material. On those there are people from different social stratas, there are often groups with different geographic origins represented on them, gender issues can be raised, and a lot of other questions. We have a research-application being treated right now on a material from a battlefield, but the research topic is strictly palaeopathology in this case. Materials from battlefields have started to appear in our sampling room during recent times as one of our latest interests. And this is likely an area where I will try to engage a masterstudent or two in the future. Masterprojects is usually a good way to collect and organize research questions, and a good start for something larger and more complex.
