Archaeology Field School Description


This topic aims to:

provide students with a theoretical introduction to the human skeleton, including the structure and function of bone as a tissue and as an infrastructure that provides support and facilitates movement
provide students with the skills required to locate, identify, and recover human remains in field settings
provide students with a basic understanding of the biological and cultural information recorded in the human skeleton, including age, sex, geographic origin, and behavioural attributes
further develop critical thinking skills, both individually and as members of a group

It is expected that on completion of this topic students will have:

developed a basic understanding of the structure and function of the human skeleton
obtained an understanding of the methods involved with the location, identification, and recovery of human remains occurring in field situations
developed an understanding of the methods employed to determine biological age, biological sex, geographic origin, basic pathology, and behavioural attributes from the analysis of human skeletal remains
