Event details

Every human being has a unique story to tell, and that story is written in their bones. Osteoarchaeologists examine the remains of our ancestors to understand more about past lifestyles, diets, diseases, and death. In order to piece past lives back together, osteoarchaeologists use a variety of techniques to understand more about the individual skeleton before them.

This intermediate level osteoarchaeology day school will introduce you to some of the basic techniques used, such as how to determine the sex of a skeleton, how to age both adults and juveniles, and metrics such as stature.

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Identify the bones of the hands and feet
  • Identify teeth and recognise the position within the skull or mandible
  • Understand and implement appropriate aging methods for both adults and juveniles
  • Describe and implement methods for gaining basic metric and data, such as cranial measurements and stature


Cost to the day (not including lunch) is £50.00. If all three days are booked together a discounted rate of £125.00 will be available.
