Human Osteology Short Courses

Bill Bevan - Skulls

Led by doctoral researchers in Human Osteology and departmental staff, our Human Osteology short course provides a broad introduction to the skills and techniques of skeletal analysis of archaeological human remains.

Ranging from basic anatomy to skeletal pathology, this course is ideal as a taster for people interested in pursuing further study in biological anthropology/human osteology; a refresher for those who have previously worked with archaeological human remains; or an opportunity for amateur enthusiasts to learn more about what goes on in the osteology lab!

Course participants benefiting from full access to our world-class teaching collections and facilities, along with the expertise of the department’s staff and researchers.  The course balances academic quality with friendly, engaging tuition.

The next Human Osteology short course will run in April 2017.

More information about the course and how to book your place will be available here soon.  Meanwhile, if you would like to be kept informed about future courses, please contact Lizzy Craig-Atkins at
