Abstract:
Studies have been made of the city's layout, housing provision, food and water supply, effluent disposal, and environmental conditions over a span of 2000 years. Examination of several thousand burials allows study of general environmental effects on longevity, robustness, stature, the incidence of disease, stress, and trauma. Relatively good provision in Roman times does not seem to have resulted in exceptional longevity though general health levels seem to have been fair. Anglian York showed quite different environmental conditions, some better and some worse. In Viking York conditions reached an all-time low with citizens living on a heap of rotting organic debris. As the Middle Ages proceeded conditions all improved. Au (abr)
