Bones to Biography & Demography

Welcome to the first content module of this course! This week is all about introducing you to the primary things that we can learn from nearly all human skeletons. Who are the people who lived in the past? Are they men, women or children? How old did they become, and how tall did they get? We can answer these questions by studying a range of bones contained in the human skeleton. Here, we will be showing you exactly how to do that, and hope you will learn a lot! ...

  • 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.

    Course Content

    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.

  • No, that is not necessary. All the study materials needed to complete this course, are provided during the MOOC.

    Of course, if you want to learn more, you can always look for more (free) information online, or even buy a book on a particular subject.
