Osteoarchaeology

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 unlimited access to labs and some of the best collections of human and animal remains in the world. You can expect a balanced timetable of lectures, seminars and practicals. You'll have access to specialist labs and world-class reference collections. Many of our masters courses include a fieldwork or project-based component. We integrate humanities and science-based approaches to nurture a deeper understanding. You'll have the opportunity to explore different viewpoints and make up your own mind about their strengths and weaknesses. We'll help you to develop your critical thinking as well as your practical skills. What we ask of you, as a member of our lively academic community, is that you challenge, question, and explore. Please see our University website for the most up-to-date course information.
