Abstract Recent advances in the recovery and analysis of ancient DNA (aDNA) and application of isotopic analysis of tissue obtained from mummified human remains has been accompanied by continued advances in non-invasive imaging using X-ray computed tomography (CT) and use of minimally invasive surgical techniques employing small fibre-optic endoscopes. We used these state-of-the-art techniques to examine ancient Egyptian mummies in the Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection of Berlin, obtaining ...

In Early Middle Ages (sixth–eleventh centuries AD), South Tyrol (Italian Alps) played a key role for geographical and military reasons. Historical sources document that allochthonous groups (germani) entered the territory, and the material culture shows mutual cultural exchanges between autochthonous and germani. Besides the nature of the migration, the demographic and socio-cultural impacts on the local population are still unknown. Stable isotope analyses were performed to provide insights int...

Abstract Objective To provide a detailed analysis and interpretation of cranial and postcranial lesions noted on an early medieval skeleton from the Italian Alps. Materials Individual (SK63) was buried within the early Christian church (5th-8th centuries AD) of Saben-Sabiona in South Tyrol (Italy). Methods The skeleton underwent macroscopic, microscopic and metric analyses. Results SK63 was a 19–25 year old male, the analysis identified at least 29 lesions, consisting of three possible antemorte...

The bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infects the stomachs of approximately 50% of all humans. With its universal occurrence, high infectivity and virulence properties it is considered as one of the most severe global burdens of modern humankind. It has accompanied humans for many thousands of years, and due to its high genetic variability and vertical transmission, its population genetics reflects the history of human migrations. However, especially complex demographic events such as th...

Summary Prevotella copri is a common human gut microbe that has been both positively and negatively associated with host health. In a cross-continent meta-analysis exploiting >6,500 metagenomes, we obtained >1,000 genomes and explored the genetic and population structure of P. copri. P. copri encompasses four distinct clades (>10% inter-clade genetic divergence) that we propose constitute the P. copri complex, and all clades were confirmed by isolate sequencing. These clades are nearly ubiquitou...

Abstract The Tyrolean Iceman is the world’s oldest glacier mummy. He was found in September 1991 in the Italian part of the Otztal Alps. Since his discovery a variety of morphological, radiological and molecular analyses have been performed that revealed detailed insights into his state of health. Despite the various pathological conditions found in the Iceman, little is known about possible forms of care and treatment during the Copper Age in Northern Italy. A possible approach to this topic is...

Prevotella copri is a common inhabitant of the human gut. Interest in P. copri has gathered pace due to conflicting reports on whether it is beneficial or detrimental to health. In a cross-continent meta-analysis exploiting >6,500 available metagenomes supported by new isolate sequencing and recovery of high-quality genomes from metagenomes, we obtained >1,000 P. copri genomes. This 100-fold increase over existing isolate genomes allowed the genetic and global population structure of P. copri to...

Abstract This work expands the study of the conservation of organic specimens of historical and artistic interest, assessing both biological and physical-chemical conservation requirements, in order to arrive at the tangible solution, set out herein. The results of the experiment carried out on the prototype demonstrated the performance in terms of gas tightness achieved by the system, as well as the ability to maintain stable storage parameters for a very long period of time. During the course ...
