Title : Bones for Historians: Putting the Body back into Biography [The author begins with a case study of a woman's skeleton from a cemetery near Barrington in Cambridgeshire. She was not quite twenty when she died and had extremely rich grave goods including a bed, one of only eleven such bed burials known in England. Surprisingly her skull gives evidence of an advance stage of leprosy and her lower legs were also badly infected. Fleming then considers skeletal evidence for questions about mortality by gender, the impact of children's chronic health problems on their lives as adults, and the health dangers present in urban settings. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : In domo bighittarum seu viduarum: Pubblica assistenza e marginalità nella Firenze medievale [Assistance by ecclesiastical institutions to the poor and unfortunate was grounded in the tradition of monastic hospitality. The demand for relief grew as urban life revived in the later Middle Ages. Among those most in need were marginalized women, including poor widows and ex-prostitutes. By the 13th century, Florence and other Italian communes were involved in regulating services to the poor. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
