Bioarchaeology research in the Faculty of Life Sciences at the University of Manchester focuses on the application of anthropological, biological and biomedical research techniques to ancient human remains from archaeological sites. Bioarchaeology addresses a range of research questions in the fields of palaeoanthropology and human evolution, human skeletal biology, palaeodemography (the study of the structure and dynamics of past populations), and palaeopathology (the study of evidence for ancient disease). Supervision is available for studies of ancient biomolecules and mummified tissues as well research on human skeletal remains.
