In June 2013, the University of Sheffield will be running a short course in human osteology. This hands-on course will be taught in the main osteology laboratory using the department’s human skeletal reference collection.
Participants will be given an overview of human skeletal anatomy and taught a variety of osteological methods. This course is ideal for those wishing to gain confidence in dealing with human skeletal material.
Students will begin to develop skills in recording skeletal material, estimating age, sex, and stature, and interpreting osteological findings and relating them to the wider archaeological context.
This course is introductory, so is aimed at people who have little or no osteological/archaeological experience. All course materials are provided and no prior qualification is needed, just enthusiasm and interest! Participants must be aged 16 years or over. To register, please go to the website and follow the 5 day course/online shop links. Registration closes on Friday 14 June 2013.
