Summary

Bioarchaeology covers the investigation of human and animal skeletal remains to understand the lives of individuals and communities in the past, in relation to their social, cultural, economic, palaeoenvironmental and evolutionary contexts.

  • The archaeological profession has an increasing need for staff with osteoarchaeological training, to assist in the interpretation of archaeological sites and understanding the human experience in the past, particularly their relationship with animals

  • Choose one of two specialist pathways within the overall context of bioarchaeology

  • MSc Bioarchaeology (Anthropology) – provides opportunities to understand the deeper human past and is ideal if you intend to pursue doctoral-level study of human evolution

  • MSc Bioarchaeology (Osteoarchaeology) – gives you the opportunity to engage in more advanced study of non-human faunal remains. Practical experience of the methods and techniques used for recording and analysing osteological remains is embedded throughout the course.
