|Innovation and multi-disciplinarity are at the base of the "Palaeopathology Database" project financed by the Innovation, research and cooperation Section of the Autonomous province of Bolzano-Alto Adige, together with the Società Ricerche Archeologiche di Rizzi Giovanni & Co., Bressanone.
The analytical study of a large amount of osteological material makes it possible to offer an innovative and systematic contribution to existing palaeopathology literature. We are presenting a dynamic database; a tool available to everyone, practical and with easy access to research material. Pathological human bones are all documented by detailed coloured photographs at high resolution, descriptions, by some x-rays and microscopic research.
