Middle Ages Anthropology
This multidisciplinary project uses state-of-the-art archaeometric methods to determine the anthropological profile of 7 individuals whose graves were found in 2006 in the abbey church on Sint-Pietersplein, Ghent. Together with simultaneous historical and archaeological research, the determinations will shed new light on the profile, kinship and identity of these individuals, who presumably belonged to the first members of the burial family of Flanders.
