Human Osteology Short Courses

The next Sheffield University Introduction to Human Osteology short course will take place in March 2016.

Lead by doctoral researchers in Human Osteology and department staff Dr Diana Mahoney Swales and Dr Elizabeth Craig-Atkins, the course will provide a broad introduction to the skills and techniques of skeletal analysis of archaeological human remains. Ranging from basic anatomy to skeletal pathology, this course is ideal as a taster for people interested in pursuing further study in biological anthropology/human osteology; a refresher for those who have previously worked with archaeological human remains; or an opportunity for amateur enthusiasts to learn more about what goes on in the osteology lab! Benefiting from full access to our world-class teaching collections and facilities, with the expertise of the department’s staff and researchers, the course balances academic quality with friendly, engaging tuition.

The next course will run for 3 days - 21st-23rd March 2016.

The 3 day course is £180/£120 (concession)
