Osteoarchaeology Courses 2013

A doctoral graduate of the University of Cambridge and a former ACA volunteer, Dr David Klingle is continuing to run a series of osteoarchaeology courses in Luton, as part of a project run by Luton Culture to further understanding of health in and around the city.

This is an ideal opportunity for students of archaeology and anyone that wants to learn more about osteology and human remains. Classes are limited to twelve students to ensure maximum access to remains. The day courses will include identification of different bones, learning how to curate remains, identify different pathologies and use this evidence to reconstruct life in different periods. The introductory course will run on the following days: 9-10 February 2013, 4-5 May and 22-23 June 2013. The courses cost £97 per day, which includes tea, coffee, and course materials.

Two new sessions have been added to the program due to popular demand. This includes a day on Animal Bone Analysis and Comparison on 3rd May 2013 and an Intermediate Skeletal Analysis Day with a focus on major pathologies on 21st June 2013. These courses cost £80 per day, which includes tea, coffee, and course materials.
