Globally, more than two billion people are chronically infected with soil-transmitted helminths such as schistosomes and hookworms (Florh et al. Helminths are worm-like parasites that survive by feeding on a living host to gain nourishment and protection, sometimes resulting in illness of the host.

Cestodes and trematodes, in particular, tend to die and deteriorate fairly rapidly after the death of the host. The taxonomy of cestodes depends greatly on the number, size, and shape of rostellar hooks, which are often lost in frozen material.

An analysis is presented of the population dynamics of the major helminth parasites of man with the aim of understanding observed patterns in the age-specific prevalence and intensity of infection.

Almost all known human specific parasites have been found in ancient feces. A review of the paleoparasitological helminth and intestinal protozoa findings available in the literature is presented. We also report the new paleoparasitologic findings from the examination performed in samples collected in New and Old World archaeological sites.
