Tracy Betsinger, Anthropology, has recently published an article in the International Journal of Paleopathology, entitled, “Trends in mortality and biological stress in a medieval Polish urban population” that explores whether urbanization impacted the health of a community experiencing an increase in population size and density and other changes. The results from the evaluation of pathological skeletal features found no change in stress with increasing urbanization, while statistical analyses of mortality and survivorship indicate that there was an increased risk of death as urbanization intensified.
