Human Osteology

In archaeology, the recovery of human remains is often a critical part of field work. Students will thus learn all the necessary skills involved with identifying osteological remains and their relationship to both archaeological and forensic analysis including relationships to race, gender, and human disease and diet. Modern techniques of analysis will be a major focus of this course.
