Offre de thèse : Embodied inequality: transforming archaeological knowledge of state formation, social disparity, and health inequality (Leiden)

Logo Leiden University

The project will investigate health inequality as it relates to socioeconomic status and state formation, in ancient Kush (ca. 2500-1500 BCE), located in what is today Sudan. Using multi-disciplinary methods, the project aims to assess how health inequality was embodied in the human skeleton. Health inequality will be assessed: (1) through time, (2) according to settlement type, (3) as it relates to vulnerable groups, and (4) and social status via the mortuary context. Analysis of inequality will consider regional, community, and individual experiences of inequality.
