Description
The excavation of the Roman cemetery in Menorca, Spain focuses on funerary structures, specifically inhumations. Participants will learn and apply excavation techniques used in biological anthropology when excavating tombs. Students will also participate in lectures on skeletal anatomy and pathologies, classes and exercises related to the course material. During the next three days of the course, students will travel to Seville by plane (included in tuition costs) and visit the most culturally interesting cities of Andalusia, Granada and Cordoba. Once in Seville, participants will study during seven days material from the excavations of a Roman villa from the ancient city of Seville. The archaeological material consists of a unique collection of Roman pottery and human remains that will be analyzed by students so that they gain experience in archaeological laboratory work. In the laboratory participants will be instructed by an anthropologist and other archaeologists in the classification, study, and conservation of human remains and other related materials. Participants will also be given lectures on methodology, Roman archaeology, biological anthropology and classification of archaeological materials and technical drawing. They will also visit the archaeological site of the area.
