Special Issue of Paleoparasitology
A global perspective on ancient parasites: Current research projects























Organized by Min Seo, Karl Reinhard, Dong Hoon Shin

Using a variety of recently developed research techniques, paleoparasitological research has rapidly developed in recent years, entering a new stage to better understand our ancestors’ parasitic infections across the world. Despite these achievements, there has not much opportunity for archaeoparasitologists to gather and share in-depth opinions. For this reason, the 14th International Congress of Parasitology (ICOPA) held in Korea (Aug 19-24, 2018; EXCO) have provided very meaningful opportunities for the researchers concerned. The sessions were organized by archaeoparasitologists under the unified theme of "A global perspective on ancient parasites: Current research projects". In the sessions, many great studies were presented for parastologists, archaeologists, and paleopathologists from South Korea as we…

Archaeoparasi…

Parasitic infection is a disease that cannot be only interpreted from a medical point of view because natural as well as sociocultural environments are closely related to the occurrence of parasitism in a certain society. In history, the pattern of parasitic infection also became different as the people’s lifestyle changed over time. Of them, urbanization might have been one of the most important events in the history of parasitism. By archaeological and anthropological studies, it is proven that there was a difference in the pattern of parasitism between the…
