ANT 4330 - Bioarchaeology (3)


When Offered: Fall. Alternate years
Bioarchaeology is the holistic, interdisciplinary, and epidemiological analysis of human skeletal remains from archaeological contexts. In this course, we will survey topics including age and sex estimation, paleo-demography, biocultural stress markers, pathology and trauma, levels of physical activity and evidence for habitual behavior, and paleodietary analyses. Beyond learning methods of bioarchaeology, students will be given the opportunity to understand the development of interpretive frameworks from evolutionary and biocultural theory. These frameworks will be examined critically and applied to case studies from human populations in different geographical and temporal contexts.
Students who have previously received credit for ANT 4331  may not enroll in or receive credit for ANT 4330
