ARAUJO, Adauto; REINHARD, Karl J.  and  FERREIRA, Luiz Fernando. THE ROLE OF MUMMY STUDIES IN PALEOPARASITOLOGY. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2000, vol.32, n.1, pp.111-115. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562000000100018.

Paleoparasitology has advance during the past decade to the status of a statistically based science focused on problems of disease ecology and geographic distribution of parasitism. For most of its development, paleoparasitology has focused on the analysis of coprolites and latrine sediments. During the past few years, mummies have been increasingly included in paleoparasitology studies. We evaluate in this paper the interpretive value of mummies relative to other sources of paleoparasitological data

Keywords : Parasites; bioarchaeology; paleopathology.
