The course will introduce students to a new world of investigation into the ancient realm of human and animal associations with their parasites. Initial discoveries were parasites in tissues of Egyptian mummies and has now expanded to include human and animal remains from around the world. Parasites have also been found in coproliths from latrines and cave habitations from the Middle Pleistocene and from dinosaurs living in the early Cretaceous. Vectors and their parasites have been found in ambers that are from the Eocene. The application of modern molecular methods has added greatly to identification of these parasites of the past and have allowed new interpretations of the various agents that people have carried with them as they have traveled around the globe.
