“An Introduction to the Study of Human Bones in Archaeology” weekend course at Oxford University Department of Continuing Education (OUDCE).

 

Last weekend this course ran at the OUDCE, over subscribed it has proved each time to be very popular. Currently the OUDCE only offers it every two years. Myself and Ceri Boston were the course tutors and we provided a hands-on introduction to analysis of human remains. With such as large subject to squash into 2 days, the course touched on all the areas of analysis. We provided lots of real examples of pathologies for the students to examine as well as the opportunity for them to put into practice on archaeological remains the methods learnt in the lectures. 

As ever, it is a joy to impart my years of experience with human remains to enthusiastic students.
