Advanced Osteology provides an intensive introduction to human osteology and the methods used to interpret the human skeleton. Students will learn:
- bones and features of the human skeleton,
- fundamentals of aging, sexing, and individuating human skeletal remains,
- how to estimate stature, weight, and the extent possible, geographic ancestry,
- how to recognize and evaluate pre- and postmortem modification, including evidence of disease and activity.
Students will be evaluated on in-class lab worksheets (40% of grade), weekly quizzes (30%), osteology sketchbook (25%), and attendance (5%).
