'The association between skeletal lesions and tuberculosis in a pre-antibiotic South African sample'
By Rethabile Masiu, Dorthe Dangvard Pederson, Lawrence Hill, and Maryna Steyn
This collaborative study explores the potential of using a wide range of skeletal lesions to accurately diagnose the presence of tuberculosis. The authors pay close attention to the biases and issues inherent to the analysis of disease in the past, while remaining optimistic that skeletal analysis, coupled with careful statistical application, can shed light on the complex relationships between health, disease, and human intersectional life experiences.
