Human skeletal remains provide a wealth of evidence about the lives of past people. Information about age-at-death, diet, place of origin, disease and occupation can all be gleaned. This talk will provide an overview of a recent study of skeletal remains excavated from Fewston, North Yorkshire, with a particular focus on the children. It will reveal the hardships faced by these youngest members of society during the industrialisation of the 18th and 19th century.  To book email or call 01765 690799
