New short courses at the University of Sheffield

The Department of Archaeology, University of Sheffield is organising new short courses that will take place in September 2016.

The Understanding Zooarchaeology I short course will run for the eleventh time. Animal bones and teeth are among the most common remains found on archaeological sites, and this three-day course will provide participants with an understanding of the basic methods that zooarchaeologists use to understand animal bone evidence.

This introductory course will be followed by a new course, Human and animal remains: a comparative approach, run for the first time this year. This course will focus on a comparison between human and other animal bones from archaeological context. By using both macroscopic and microscopic analyses, along with an insight into biomolecular investigations, the course will illustrate some basic tools used in distinguishing human remains from those of other animals. Different methodologies and research approaches that characterise the different disciplines of human osteoarchaeology, zooarchaeology and forensic science will be discussed.

Both Understanding Zooarchaeology I and Human and animal remains: a comparative approach courses are directed to students, professionals and enthusiasts and do not require any previous knowledge of the discipline. The teaching in both courses will be delivered through short lectures, hands-on practical activities and case studies.

Here some details:

Understanding Zooarchaeology I: 12th-14th September 2016

Human and animal remains: a comparative approach: 15th-116h September 2016

Cost: £180/£120 (student/unwaged) each course or £220/£330 (student/unwaged) for both courses
