by Ed Hagen last modified Jan 25, 2013 06:51 PM
The course entitled “Reading old bodies: New directions in the bio-archaeological heritage” will be held July 1st -12th, 2013. The goal of this two-week course is to make students familiar with the different methods and approaches developed in the last decades to study and interpret ancient human remains, considered as a multidimensional source for the comprehension of the past.

Students, with the contribution of experts from a variety of disciplines connected to bio?archaeological studies, ranging from archaeology, history, physical anthropology, paleopathology, paleodemography, zooarchaeology, genetics and isotopic studies, will be confronted not only with the methods themselves and their potentials and limitation, but critically, also with the more complex issue of integrating information gained from such different approaches, arising from differences in scientific disciplines and traditions.

The application deadline is February 15, 2013. Financial aid is available.
