15 Credits SPRING

Pre-requisites: AAP661, AAP685

Aims/Description: This unit is designed for students who have already taken a basic module in zooarchaeology (e.g. AAP661) or human osteology (e.g. AAP685), or have equivalent experience and will run in parallel to `Advanced Zooarchaeology¿ and `Biological Anthropology II¿ (AAP681). This module will consist of the study of an osteoarchaeological assemblage, which will be undertaken individually by students, but with supervision and advice from staff and, when appropriate, research students. The students will be able to choose between a human and animal bone assemblage. The students will first be introduced to their tasks and parallel case studies, and will then embark in individual work. 

Teaching Methods: Lectures, Seminars, Problem solving, Laboratory work, Independent Study
Assessment: Course work, Presentation
