Archaeology Field School Description

The University of Winnipeg, in collaboration with Belgrade University, Faculty of Medicine, is now accepting applications for a course in Advanced Human Osteology held in Belgrade, Serbia. This is an advanced course in human skeletal biology, covering theoretical approaches and methods used in the analysis of skeletal and dental remains in bioarchaeological and forensic contexts. Undergraduate students in North America are rarely exposed to large collections of human remains from archaeological sites and therefore often lack experience with fragmented bones, human non-metric and metric variation, and pathological conditions. This course covers analyses and interpretation of age, sex, disease and lifestyle markers on skeletal remains and offers a hands-on learning on a large archaeological collection in a well-equipped research and training facility with equipment ranging from measuring equipment to diamond saws and microCT capabilities.

Credits: 6
Dates: June 20 - July 20, 2015
Application Deadline: March 15, 2015
