Basics of Human Osteology

Primary Course Instructors: Sara Getz, Ph.D., and Diana Messer, Ph.D.
The goal of this two-day short course is to familiarize students and professionals with the identification of human skeletal remains frequently encountered in biological, bioarchaeological, and forensic anthropological contexts. Emphasis will be placed on identifying and siding human bone, differentiating human from non-human bone, and recognizing sub-adult remains. Participants will be introduced to normal human variation as well as taphonomic and pathological changes. The course involves extensive hands-on opportunities with real human bone, supplemented with detailed lectures and actual forensic case studies.
