Osteoarchaeology Short Course poster



This five-day course (Monday – Friday) is held at the EdShed (Folk of Gloucester). It is run by the Sedgeford Historical and Archaeological Research Project (SHARP) and is taught by Osteologist Dr Sophie Beckett.

The course assumes no prior knowledge of either archaeology or osteology. It has a focus of post-excavation recording of the articulated and disarticulated human remains excavated from the Early Medieval (Anglo-Saxon) cemetery site at Sedgeford (Norfolk).

Course content is taught through short lectures or participative seminar sessions and practical recording sessions. During the practical sessions, attendees work in small groups of 2 or 3 to apply what they have learnt to the direct, hands-on study of skeletal remains, with the help and supervision of course tutors.

For more information, see the SHARP website.
