This year Stockwood Discovery Centre has announced a new and updated program of osteoarchaeology courses. All courses are aimed at increasing knowledge of human skeletal remains, providing thorough hands-on access and teaching people how to identify sex, age, and pathologies on skeletons that are over 1500 years old.
Luton Culture is hosting one or two-day human remains workshops as part of a project to further understanding of health in and around Luton, and allow people the opportunity to analyse human remains from the Roman and Medieval periods. This is an ideal opportunity for undergraduates and graduates in archaeology and forensics, museum staff, local archaeologists from societies as well as anyone who wants to know more about osteology. It is a great way to gain hands-on experience of human remains in a museum environment and learn about the past from people who lived through it.
One new session has been added to the program due to popular demand. This is an Intermediate Skeletal Analysis Day with a focus on major pathologies.
Courses run in May and June, and are open to anyone 17 years and older. Price includes tea & coffee and course materials.
