Paleoparasitology Based On Historical Texts

Under the collaboration with historian, I am currently writing about how the higher prevalence rate of soil transmitted parasite infection could be achieved among Old Seoul City people of Joseon dynasty. As you know, the epidemiological studies would be used if we want to know the mechanism of infections observed among living people. However, we could not use such a technique for hundred year old cases.... This could be achieved only by epdemiological consideration based on historical studies.. We will finish our work within a few month. 

And this study would be presented to the colleagues in the other countries... at the meetings like WORLD MUMMY CONGRESS in Rio, Brazil.
