Back Pain through the Ages – Monday 27 January 2020, 7pm

Every year about 1 in 3 people in the UK suffer from back pain.  It is one of the most common causes of disability within the UK and has links to a variety of different spine disorders. These illnesses occur for a variety reasons, such as age, physical activity and genetics, and can be found in the skeletons discovered at many archaeological sites.
