Paleopathology: The study of disease through the evidence of fossils and other archaeological evidence. Dr. Otto Appenzeller, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Neurology and Medicine at the University of New Mexico, shares his decades of research with us. Ancient iconography, in both paintings and statues, provides enough detail for modern researchers to confidently diagnose diseases of the past. Join us in this fascinating glimpse inside the biological pathologies of specific figures of antiquity!
