By unlocking the archive material we hope to give researchers the ability to reassess Calvin Wells’ ‘strange and scholarly’ life and work.It was done with co-operation of the landowners and the trout fishery and included reconnecting the river with its floodplain, narrowing the channel, reinstating the gravel river bed and putting some of the meanders back along the channel.Project manager John Abraham, of the Environment Agency, said: The strategy has now moved into the implementation phase, which is a very exciting time.While only writing two books in his lifetime, Wells’ skeletal reports, journal articles and contributions of chapters to other publications means that he remains one of the most prolific writers on palaeopathology in the United Kingdom.Moreover as the Putting Flesh on the Bones project unlocks Wells’ archive we are finding considerably more writings not included in his official bibliography.

In an interview for the BBC Home Service Wells stated that: the eminent Belgian physician Paul Janssens gave the work a glowing review, calling it a work of great value to archaeologists, medical doctors and the general reader.The only exception to the largely enthusiastic response to saw the author as ‘underestimating the reading ability and intelligence of people most likely to read such books’.The second major criticism, possibly the sharpest blow to the self-confessed pedant Wells, was that the book suffered from vague and inaccurate referencing.Overall, Brothwell felt the book fell ‘below par’ of the usual standard featured in the ‘Ancient People and Places’ series.was an attempt by Wells to write an anthropological survey analysing 1 million years of human history and civilisation.The book was released with relatively little fanfare with none of the international publicity his first book received.Up until this point Wells had published relatively little research besides a handful of skeletal reports focused mainly on excavations in East Anglia.However, letters from Daniel to Wells reveal that the editor was keen to meet the demand for archaeological literature which focused specifically on ancient disease, injury and medical treatment.
