Bioarchaeological research provides unique insights on human adaptation, diet, lifestyle, and epidemiology. The Mogou Bioarchaeology Project explores how health was affected by the Bronze Age transition in Northwest China. Preliminary results reveal that the inhabitants experienced substantial physiological stress, infectious disease, and lethal trauma.
