Burial archaeology and Health and Safety
#4
interesting document, though possibly not really intended for the majority of archaeological exhumations. However, the potential for smallpox and anthrax to remain in soil for a considerable period of time means there is always going to be a potential risk to health. In the absence of burial records to check on likely pathogens or suiting, booting and wearing masks at all times, how can we mitigate against this possibility? Does anyone know if there have been any studies into exactly how long smallpox etc can survive in different burial environments?
