Primary Instructor:

The course is concerned with the identification and interpretation of human skeletal remains. Emphasis is placed on both the individual and populational levels of interpretation. Topics include the basic biology of normal bone, pathology, and variation in form. Identification and reconstruction of fragmentary materials as well as reconstruction of populational characteristics (age, sex, life history data, metric description) are covered. It is specifically designed for archaeologists and biological anthropologists but would also be of use to pre-dental and pre-medical students who will take gross anatomy in the future. The course is limited to 20 students. We will meet for four scheduled hours, and additional laboratory time.
