In these trying circumstances, it is crucial no to lose sight of the things that are most important – being kind and thoughtful, and doing our best to keep ourselves and everybody else safe. As bioarchaeologists, we have studied and researched paleoepidemiology and human health and societie’s relationship with it in various times in history. Archaeology teaches us that humankind has experienced and survived many a calamity and big transformation, but never without grave losses. That is why we urge you to do your part – listen to the experts, to doctors and scientists and stay at home.
