Title : Life Patterns of Women from Medieval York [The author examined skeletal remains from a poor parish in medieval York to learn more about the demography, health, and life expectancies of women. The author found more women than men in the cemetery and that more women than men died between the ages of 25 and 35. Because women's skeletons showed fewer signs of stressors, the author theorizes that women were less able than men to fight off serious diseases or injuries. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
