An Introduction to Forensic Archaeology

Thursday 29 September 2022, 6.30PM to 9.30pm

Speaker(s): Maria Fontanals-Coll BSc MSc PhD

Forensics has come to the forefront of many academic disciplines of late. Here we will focus on the examination of human remains to learn about the individual concerned and the circumstances of their deposition, looking at how to locate buried evidence, as well as how to recover and record findings. ‘Reading the skeleton’ is a difficult skill to master, but through case studies and the review of analytical techniques, we will offer a solid introduction to all learners. The module will involve some practical demonstrations with real skeletons; students’ ethical concerns will be taken into account.
