Subjects/methods: Human Osteoarchaeology

Human remains from archaeological sites provide tangible evidence of past peoples and their lifeways. Through knowledge and understanding of the structure and function of the human skeleton researchers can gain information about the physical activities, diet, disease and demography of human populations from the palaeolithic to the present day. The department has an active group of staff and postgraduate students who pursue research questions in human osteoarchaeology, and our researchers have access to extensive skeletal reference collections and laboratory facilities dedicated to the study of human remains.
