ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Katie Faillace calls in from the University of Cardiff to share her work in dental anthropology. By measuring non-metric traits, Katie is able to use archaeological teeth to infer relatedness among different populations across the region of Wessex between the Roman and early medieval periods. This is because dental nonmetric features tend to be passed on genetically as opposed to having much functional purpose.
We also talk about academic conferencing and community archaeology in Wales.
