Imagine that you are working with a team of bioarchaeologists that has just excavated a medieval cemetery.  The cemetery has over 200 graves, with all ages and sexes represented in the skeletal sample.  You are interested in knowing if there are differences in the health between the ages and sexes of the individuals?

How would you answer the question above using skeletal remains?
What analyses would you need to conduct with the Skeltons, and what health indicators might you look for in the bones?
