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.

Europe - Spain - Cova Gran Field School - 2016

Deadline
2016-04-22

The ability to quickly and efficiently adapt to diverse landscapes allowed humans to spread throughout the world during the Paleolithic period. In the Old World, such ability enabled early humans to replace Neanderthals (and likely H. denisovans) in diverse environment, including the Southern Pyrenees. How such replacement took place and what where the technological and social advantaged early human brought to the region is still poorly understood. Through excavations at Cova Gran de Santa Linya – a large rock shelter located at the seam between the first range of the southern Pyrenees and the Ebro Basin – students will explore these very questions. The cave is rich with evidence of human occupation dating to at least as early as 50,000 years ago and continuing through the Neolithic and Bronze Ages. This program will combine lectures, field survey, excavation and laboratory training. The long human occupation sequence at Cova Gran will provide students with the rare opportunity to explore and document an extensive cultural sequence of the region.

Deadline
This course is divided in two parts. In this way, students can learn and experiment in both archaeological digs, developed in the land site: Digging in the Roman city and Biological Anthropology in the tombs of Sanisera. PART 1. DIGGING IN SANISERA In the area which is under archaeological excavation, an ecclesiastical complex has been found, which dates from the 4th and 6th centuries AD. It includes an Early Christian basilica. Rome adopted Christianity as its official religion in the 4th century AD. From that time onwards, Christian basilicas started been built all over the Empire. Participants will receive an intensive introduction to basic aspects of field excavation techniques following the Harris Matrix. In the laboratory students will learn to classify all the artifacts found on site, including Roman pottery, numismatics and faunal remains. Time dedicated to this part of the program: 50%. PART 2. BIOARCHAEOLOGY IN THE NECROPOLIS OF SANISERA Death in Rome has been studied in Sanisera since we started digging the first necropolis in 2008. So far we have excavated 72 tombs belonging to a Roman cemetery which could have been related to a basilica in the Roman city if Sanisera, which dates from the 4th and 6th centuries AD. The Osteology corpus in this necropolis includes more than 270 individuals. The fieldwork focuses on funerary structures, specifically inhumation graves. Participants will learn and apply excavation techniques used in biological anthropology when excavating tombs. Students will also participate in lectures on skeletal anatomy and pathologies, classes, exercises and excursions related to the course material. In the laboratory participants will be instructed by an anthropologist and other archaeologists in the classification, study, and conservation of human remains and other related materials found. Time dedicated to this part of the program: 50%. DIRECTED AT If you have not previously participated as a volunteer in a field school and would like to experiment and gain knowledge with different excavation techniques and methodology during 20 days in two distinctly different sites, this course would be a good option for you. It is difficult to find a course that allows you to explore both biological anthropology and archaeology where you can gain experience and knowledge in both excavating tombs with human remains and techniques used in excavating Roman structures. You will experiment in both archaeology and biological anthropology, two areas with many similarities, but also many differences when excavating and treating recovered archaeological material in the laboratory. At the end of this program you will have experience in both areas and will be able to better decide what path is best for you; biological anthropology or archaeology. Both of the excavation sites are located on the northern coast of the island, surrounded by the sea and pristine and dramatic Mediterranean landscapes. Previous knowledge or experience in archaeology or computer systems is not required. FIELD SCHOOL LIFE AND LANGUAGE Participants will also be given lectures on methodology, Roman archaeology, Biological anthropology and classification of archaeological materials.
