Ancient Spanish women used their teeth for textile work, study says

  • Scientists analysed fossilised teeth of 106 individuals buried in southern Spain
  • Marks on dental records of females show they used their teeth to make textiles
  • Certain jobs were reserved exclusively for women during Spanish Bronze Age
  • Female-dominated jobs included production of hand-crafted threads and metals

Some textile-related work tasks were only carried out by women during the Bronze Age (1900-1600 BC) in southern Spain, a new study of dental records shows. 

Researchers analysed fossilised teeth of 106 individuals buried in Granada, southern Spain, who were part of the ancient ‘Argaric’ culture 4,000 years ago. 

Women workers used their front teeth – incisors and canines – to perform tasks that involved biting into threads and cords, they found.  

The specific dental wear features, including notches, flakes and grooves on the enamel, resulted from the manipulation of plant and animal fibres used to produce textiles and baskets.   

Scientists say that dental remains

Which dental specialists should you see?

We all know that maintaining good dental health is important — it affects our teeth and jaw, our ability to chew, and our smiles. But it also affects our overall health! Therefore, regular visits with dental professionals are important for maintaining physical health throughout our bodies. But which dental specialist do you see when a dental issue arises? It can be confusing. To take some of the guess work out of it, we’ll describe who does what in the field of dentistry:

General Dentist

A general dentist is a dental professional who is often a patient’s primary dental provider trained to diagnose and treat general dental health issues. From preventative care, to cleanings and exams, to restorative care such as filling cavities and placing crowns, a general dentist is trained in main areas of dental care. Most general dentists first obtain an undergraduate degree, then complete a four-year dental school

A therapist has shared a video that shows exactly what it’s like trying to read when you have dyslexia.

Lindsay Fleming, a licensed therapist for children and teens, posted the clip on TikTok, in which you can try to read a passage of text made up of muddled letters and words.

The point of the video is to highlight the challenges faced everyday by students and young people who struggle with the condition.

‘Have you ever wondered what it’s like for someone to read who is dyslexic in a classroom?’ asks Lindsay on the video.

‘Well, I’m a licensed therapist and I have a challenge for you to find out what it’s like. So, what I want you to do is try to read this that’s above me. That’s what it’s like.’

London’s main lab nearly doubles COVID-19 tests during just six weeks of second wave

Article content continued

The lab’s six-figure total over the last six weeks comes despite a critical piece of lab equipment unexpectedly going offline on Sept. 24, a temporary downtime that led to a four-day backlog in test processing, LHSC said.

The lab returned to regular turnaround times on Sept. 28.

Last week, Health Canada approved a rapid COVID-19 test by Abbott Diagnostics Scarborough Inc., a device the company said can turn around a result from a sample in as little as 13 minutes. The federal government has announced a plan to buy 7.9 million of the rapid tests.

It is not yet clear whether the new test processing device will become part of the PaLM lab, LHSC said in a statement: “The federal government has not yet released specific details regarding the allocation plan for rapid testing devices.”

Demand for COVID-19 testing in London and across the province skyrocketed last
