Understanding Zooarchaeology II (2nd-5th/04/2024)
The main aim of Zooarchaeology is to understand the interaction between humans and animals, through the study of animal bone remains from archaeological sites.
Our four-day course is designed to give participants direct experience of analysing and recording faunal assemblages. Using brief theoretical lessons, case-studies, and practical sessions the course will provide participants with experience of the whole range of knowledge and skills required by the discipline, with the opportunity to write a proper zooarchaeological report.
Understanding Zooarchaeology II is more advance than our foundation course in Zooarchaeology (Understanding Zooarchaeology I) as such, a basic knowledge of Zooarchaeology is required (ability to make basic bone identifications of common animal elements and species).
Refund requests should be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, no less than 7 days before the start of the course. We will endeavour to fill the course place, and in the event that a replacement is found a full refund will be made. If a replacement cannot be found a refund of 50% of the course fee will be made for cancellations made more than 7 days before the start of the course. No refund will be made for cancellations made less than 7 days before the course start date.
At the discretion of the course organisers, and in exceptional circumstances, participants that are unable to attend can defer their enrolment until the next Zooarchaeology short course.
If you are experiencing any difficulty please contact us as early as possible.
…the layout of the course was brilliant. It was great that there was theory followed by practical as it made sure that the theory sessions were not too long and overwhelming
There were a lot of staff members involved… it worked extremely well… It enabled the different topics to be covered by people that have a clear demonstrable passion for their field
…the passion and commitment of the entire department was inspiring. I just want you to continue doing what you are doing. This was my first course and I will be booking others
