Understanding Zooarcheaology I
The Understanding Zooarchaeology I short course will run for the twelfth time, from the 17th to the 19th of January 2018. 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. During this course participants will begin to develop the skills necessary to: understand the principles of excavating animal bones; care for and store bones after excavation; identify different species from their bones and teeth; age and sex bones; recognize taphonomy, butchery and pathology; understand how zooarchaeological material is analysed and quantified; interpret site reports and zooarchaeological literature. The course is directed to students, professionals and enthusiasts and does not require any previous knowledge of the discipline. The teaching will be delivered through short lectures, hands-on practical activities and case studies.
