ANTH 213 - Bioarchaeology

4 credits
This course provides an introduction to bioarchaeology, a field of study that integrates aspects of biological anthropology and archaeology in an examination of the human component of the archaeological past. Bioarchaeology examines human skeletal remains from archaeological contexts with an aim at reconstructing human life histories, activity and disease with an ideological emphasis on anthropological problem solving and integration of archaeological data. Lectures will cover the fundamentals of bioarchaeology analysis. Topics to be explored include aspects of diet and nutrition, migration, paledemography, behavior and bones, gender and identity, disease burden, and trauma and bioarchaeology of violence among other topics.
