My experiences of scientific studies on archaeological specimens in South Korea
The experts from various research fields made an interdisciplinary collaboration on the biological specimens obtained from archaeological sites in South Korea. To catch vivid aspects of the ancient people’s heath and disease status, archaeologists, historians and bioanthropologists in this country continued to collaborate each other, which was proven very benefit in that the data obtained from the collaboration is otherwise unobtainable by conventional archaeological or historical studies alone. Even though there are before us many unresolved problems and technical difficulties, we can be optimistic about the prospects of this collaborative study. I will fully describe about the interdisciplinary collaboration in South Korea, by which the particular glimpse of ancient people and society could be shown, clearly based on the scientific evidences.
