Archaeological paleoparasitology identifies parasitic remains (primarily eggs) excavated from archaeological contexts. Beyond their traditional use as indicators of human health, parasites can act as proxies to determine dietary shifts, migration and regional variation, seasonality, climatic and environmental changes. In this sense, they mirror the micro and macroevolution of their human and animal hosts, providing important insights to archaeological questions. My research focuses on recovery and methodology for analyzing parasites from prehistoric hunter-gatherer sites, which have gone largely unexplored.
