Human Osteology: an introduction

                    

Date: 11 April 2014

Duration: 1 day

Course leaders: Lauren McIntyre and Isabelle Heyerdahl-King

This is an intensive one-day course for anyone interested in acquiring a working knowledge of human skeletal anatomy, and for those working in associated fields (field archaeology, medical, dental, museum curation etc.) who wish to broaden or refresh their knowledge. Working with both archaeological human remains and casts of human skeletal material, participants will gain an overview of human skeletal from an evolutionary perspective and will cover the basics of the anatomy and identification of individual bones. Learning to identify the individual diagnostic features of each element, participants will also learn to identify fragmentary material. A summative identification quiz at the end of the day will enable participants to test their knowledge.
