ANTH 3530 - Bioarchaeology


This course introduces students to the biocultural, interdisciplinary and integrative study of human remains recovered from archaeological contexts. Students will examine the reconstruction of skeletal populations for patterns of subsistence, stress, disease, paleodemography, biological relatedness, occupational indicators, trauma, and warfare. Students will learn how to recognize the manifestations of these patterns on human remains, and will be able to describe and critique the methods used by bioarchaeologists to gather and interpret information from human skeletal data.

Prerequisites & Corequisites: Prerequisites: ANTH 2100 or ANTH 2500, or instructor approval.

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: This course is approved as a writing-intensive course which satisfies the baccalaureate-level writing requirement of the student’s curriculum.
