About the Event

Their study can tell us much about ancient societies, including diet, economic status, the use of secondary products such as wool, leather, pelts and horn, and peoples’ attitudes towards the wild and domestic animals around them. The two-day course introduces the basic techniques used in the study of bone assemblages, with case-studies providing examples of some of the information that can be obtained. Practical sessions will familiarise participants with mammal, bird and fish skeletons, methods of ageing and sexing, and recognition of pathology and butchery.
