The MEDICAL project aims to explores, through dental calculus analysis, the medical care offered to people who experienced leprosy and lived in leprosaria in Northern Europe during the late medieval period. Using cutting edge techniques, historical information from published works, and modern reference collections, this research aims to identify the micro-remains of plants and other medicinal ingredients as well as other additional information useful to reconstruct the everyday life in a medieval leper hospital.
