In Search of Medieval Religious Women: From Text to Teeth

Professor Alison Beach,  University of St Andrews presents new and exciting research on how the analysis of dental calculus from the teeth of medieval religious women has revealed their work as scribes and illuminators of medieval manuscripts. The collaboration of scientists and archaeologists is helping to tell a fuller story of life in medieval women's monasteries and their active role in book production.
