Palaeopathology is the study of ancient diseases. This can be anything from the cause of the Black Death to the parasites of T-Rex and everything in between. Here we take a look at some interesting examples from the fossil record.

Note on Errors
This is a blog and however hard I try the odd typo or grammatical error will creep in. If you notice anything please feel free to get in touch and I will try to fix things as quickly as possible. Similarly if you see anything you think is factually incorrect, and can send me a reference for the correction, please send them to palaeoinfo@gmail.com.

This blog is not here to diagnose or recommend treatment for any disease (unless you’re a velociraptor of course). If you think you are sick go to a medical professional.
