This course is about what we can learn from examining the human skeleton, and how we can use this knowledge to reconstruct the lives of people who lived in the past. In archaeology and anthropology, human skeletal remains can provide unique insights into the past and the present; insights that cannot be gained otherwise.

What does the course syllabus look like?
The course consists of five weeks, each week dealing with a different aspect of what we can learn from the human skeleton in an archaeological context.
Each week is concluded with a multiple choice quiz about that week's subject, as well as a "Solve the Mystery" exercise that involves students analyzing a fictional skeleton using the knowledge they have gained in that week. The final course grade is based on a combination of the grades received for these two exercises each week.
Week 1 The Osteobiography. Estimating age in adults and subadults, estimation of sex and stature.
Week 2 Paleopathology. Different types of disease and trauma that can be detected in the human skeleton.
Week 3 Paleodiet. Using stable isotope analysis and dental disease to reconstruct diet in the past.
Week 4 Activity Reconstruction. Using entheseal change, joint degeneration and teeth to reconstruct activity in the past.
Week 5 Mobility and Migration. Using long bone morphology, Strontium isotopes and ancient DNA to reconstruct mobility and migration.
Do I need to buy any books to complete the course?
No, that is not necessary. All the study materials needed to complete this course, are provided during the MOOC.
