Human Remains Team – Summer 2018

The Human Remains Team has had a busy and productive summer this year, so we just wanted to give you an update on the work we have been doing. “Introduction to Human Remains” course Our introductory course had nine attendees this year. Over the course of the week, they learnt basic skeletal anatomy, how to assess skeletons for their age, sex, and any illnesses they suffered from. They learnt about methods of recording and analysing skeletal remains, and discussed the ethics of examining bones. They recorded three of our favourite skeletons over the week, and presented an interesting discussion of “The Tale of the Three Spines” to the other volunteers at the end of the week.
