ANTH 3250 - Human Osteology

Credits: (3)
Typically Taught Fall Semester: Full Sem
Typically Taught Spring Semester: Full Sem
Description: This course is a detailed study of the anatomy of the human skeleton as a dynamic, living system.  Consideration is given to the growth, structure, and function of bones, and to bioarchaeological and forensic skills such as the determination of ancestry, age, sex, stature, and pathology from skeletal remains. We will combine theory, its applications, and the limitation of osteological methods with laboratory analysis.  Relevant techniques for the reconstruction of past populations and the assessment of human biological variation will be introduced.
