Using Bones to Unlock the Past

  • Date: Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018
  • Time: 11:30am - 1:30pm
  • Location: Knicely Conference Center
Description:

Bioarcheology analyzes human remains excavated from archaeological sites to

understand their life histories. By examining the skeleton, characteristics such as sex,

ancestry, height, and age at death can often be determined. Bones may also provide

evidence of disease and trauma. Using burials from a medieval Danish cemetery, this

presentation follows the steps used to make these determinations and the methods

used to unlock the stories of people who lived more than 500 years ago
