WATCH our Paget's Research DOCUMENTARY below
Specially produced for Paget's Awareness Day, this exciting Research documentary below explores what medieval bones and teeth can tell us about Paget's disease. Watch as investigators reveal the new science and stories behind the archaeological collection at Norton Priory, Cheshire. The research was featured in an episode of 'Bone Detectives' on Channel 4.
Could ancient skeletons change the history of disease?
Focusing on the multi-disciplinary Paget’s research at Norton Priory in Runcorn, Cheshire, which has already attracted international interest, this research documentary details exciting research into medieval skeletons. Could this change the way conditions, including Paget’s disease, can be traced through history and therefore open opportunities to change the way we research diseases in the future?
