Program Overview

Program Description:
Forensic Anthropology is the interpretation of the human skeleton to reconstruct the life of the person. The experiences of a person’s life leave an imprint on their bones and the forensic anthropologist seeks to answer as many questions as possible: Did they die young or live to an old age? Did they have a good diet or did they suffer from malnutrition? How tall did they grow? Were they quiet and sedentary or did they have a vigorous lifestyle? Were they afflicted with chronic disease? Did they inherit traits from their parents? The above are just some of the questions that can be answered by those with the skills to read bones, and they can reveal fascinating details about the life, and sometimes the death, of a person who lived centuries ago.

This two week course will be of interest to many who work in archaeology, including current students of archaeology as well as professionals who seek to learn more about this specialised area within archaeology.
