The goal of the course of bioarchaeology is to provide training in the basics of human osteology, archaeozoology, and archaeobotany. Training will comprise short lectures on goals and methods in bioarchaeology, while more time will be devoted to practice on bioarchaeological materials. The course is organized for undergraduate students without preconditions in previous training in bioarchaeology.
The lectures are going to be presented by teaching staff of the Department of Archaeology and senior researchers of the Laboratory for Bioarchaeology. Practice will enable each student to independently work on human and animal bones, and plant remains under the supervision of junior researchers of the Laboratory for bioarchaeology.
The course will be held at the Research Center Petnica near Valjevo.
