Shmunis Family Anthropology Institute
Bones form a long-lasting record of almost every significant event in our lives. With the use of cutting-edge imaging equipment, researchers at the Shmunis Family Anthropological Institute can extract information stored in the bones of people long past. This information can shed light on various aspects of human behaviour, nutrition, and health, allowing researchers to glean crucial knowledge on the biological history of humankind.
At the Shmunis Family Anthropological Institute, novel imaging devices provide the resident and guest researchers with opportunities to reveal additional important information on historic populations, that would otherwise be inaccessible through more traditional methods. These devices include but are not limited to, our state of the art micro-CT, handheld X-ray device, micro- and macro- surface scanners and histological equipment. The digital data is stored in the Shmunis Virtual Library of Hominin Fossils.
