Course Description

Osteoarchaeology is concerned with the study of both human and animal remains from archaeological sites. This course provides practical skills in the identification and analysis of both human and animal bones, while providing a theoretical archaeological underpinning focused on the interpretation of human and animal remains in the context of the diet, health, natural environment, economy, social and ritual activities of past human societies. The opportunity to study both animals and human remains as part of the same course is of great benefit as the two sets of analytical skills complement and strengthen each other. There are option units within this osteoarchaeology course that will enable you to tailor your learning. It also provides the opportunity if you have a particular preference or aptitude for either animal or human remains the chance to specialise your studies in either area. The course is delivered by an experienced and enthusiastic team who are leading experts in their fields.
