Description
OVERVIEW This is an intensive lab topic that provides students with a detailed introduction to the human skeleton. In addition to the identification of all components of the skeleton, students will learn the range of biological and chemical information that is recorded in the human skeleton. In relation to archaeology and forensic science, the topic provides knowledge regarding the location, identification, recovery, and analysis of human remains occurring in field contexts. Key information regarding biological age, sex, stature, geographic origin, behavioral attributes, and chronometric dating are addressed. Workshops provide the essential hands-on practical component of teaching and learning in human osteology.
