The study of ancient parasites, paleoparasitology, is an area of parasitology that evolved as a research field combining archaeology, anthropology, biology, and health sciences ( ). It aims to detect parasite traces in ancient samples and to study parasitism evolution over time and space ( ). This research field covers the study of parasites in humans and other animal remains recovered from archaeological and paleontological sites.
