Course content

Using a combination of established and cutting-edge methods, this course focuses on the study of bones from archaeological sites. You’ll get training in the analysis of both animal and human bones, but you may decide to specialise in one or the other.

The course is taught through lectures, seminars and lab-based practicals. We use case studies from all over the world and we explore all phases of human history. You’ll have access to labs and some of the best collections of human and animal remains in the world.
