Archaeology Taster Day
Date and Time:
Wed 1 Mar 2017, 09:00 - 16:00
Duration: 3 hours (9:00–12:00 & 13:00–16:00)
There are two taster sessions for you to choose from - or attend both!
Archaeology – People in the Past
Morning Session: 9:00-12:00
This workshop will introduce you to the field of human osteology; how osteologists gather data from the skeleton, what information is recorded and how this information can be used to investigate past populations. The University of Bradford has an international reputation for teaching and research in human skeletal remains and this workshop will give you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in this area, with staff and researchers from Archaeological Sciences.
Religion and Ritual in Prehistory
Afternoon Session: 13:00-16:00
The study of religion and ritual in the past is a fascinating and significant topic in understanding our ancestors. In this event we will introduce the topic and showcase new research. After a brief introduction to the School of Archaeological Sciences, the workshop will discuss how archaeologists think about strange artefacts and monuments. The talk will be followed by an opportunity for hands-on study of the kinds of artefacts and evidence which archaeologists use in the study of past ritual and belief.
