Anne Austin is a Mellon Fellow in the Scholars in the Humanities program for 2014-16.

Her research combines the fields of osteology and Egyptology in order to document medicine and disease in the past. Specifically, she uses data from the human remains and daily life texts of the ancient Egyptian village of Deir el-Medina to reconstruct ancient Egyptian health care networks and identify the diseases and illnesses people experienced in the past. Anne Austin teaches Medicine and Disease in the Ancient World and Egyptomania! The Allure of Ancient Egypt Over the Past 3,500 Years.
