Labourers, civil servants, grocers and stock brokers. One thing is the same for all people in every culture for all time: when life is over, we die. But our bones (sometimes) remain and leave a testimony of our lives, living conditions, health and death for our descendants.
The study of skeletal remains provide the basis for formulating a theory on the factors of mortality and evolution from the end of the last ice age and up to the modern world of today.
In Biological anthropology, you will learn skeletal identification, systematic data administration, epidemiological analysis and anthropological report writing.
You learn to examine, register and report findings of human remains. At the same time you get the biological knowledge necessary to analyse the connection between living conditions, diseases and mortality of our forefathers.
Biological anthropology is offered by the Faculty of Science
