I think this might be of interest for you.
The Department of Archaeology, University of Sheffield is organizing new
short courses that will take place in September 2016.
The *Understanding Zooarchaeology I* short course will run for the eleventh
time. Animal bones and teeth are among the most common remains found on
archaeological sites, and this three-day course will provide participants
with an understanding of the basic methods that zooarchaeologists use to
understand animal bone evidence.
This introductory course will be followed by a new course, *Human and
animal remains: a comparative approach*, run for the first time this year.
This course will focus on a comparison between human and other animal bones
from archaeological context. By using both macroscopic and microscopic
analyses, along with an insight into biomolecular investigations, the
course will illustrate some basic tools used in distinguishing human
remains from those of other animals. Different methodologies and research
approaches that characterize the different disciplines of human
osteoarchaeology, zooarchaeology and forensic science will be discussed.
Both *Understanding Zooarchaeology I* and *Human and animal remains: a
comparative approach* courses are directed to students, professionals and
enthusiasts and do not require any previous knowledge of the discipline.
The teaching in both courses will be delivered through short lectures,
hands-on practical activities and case studies.
Here some details:
Understanding Zooarchaeology I: 12th-14th September 2016
Human and animal remains: a comparative approach: 15th-116h September 2016
£180/£120 (student/unwaged) each course
