Department of Anthropology  (ADBOU) offers 3 elective courses in biological anthropology: Basic Biological Anthropology, Advanced Biological Anthropology and Project Report in Biological Anthropology. It is also possible to make an individual arrangement about a master level education within this subject.

Are you interested in human beings, history, life and death, ilnesses etc? The department stores more than 15.000 skeletons, mainly from the medieval Denmark.

Furthermore, the general Health condition can be read from the skeletons, for instance seen as changes in lifespan and the avage hight.
