Hi Everyone!

Just a quick note to let you know that registration is now open for our next Sheffield zooarchaeology short course: 

*Understanding zooarchaeology: a short course for archaeology and heritage professionals and enthusiasts* University of Sheffield, 18th-20th April 2012 

Over three days our team of zooarchaeologists will introduce participants to the methods that can be used to gather information from archaeological animal bones and the relevance of these remains to wider archaeological study.

The course is designed for people with little or no previous experience in zooarchaeology, and is an ideal introduction to the field for archaeologists, museum curators and other heritage professionals who come across animal bones and/or zooarchaeological reports in their professional capacity. Through short lectures, discussions and hands on practical workshops, the course will give the participants practical experience of zooarchaeological methods and will help you to understand the archaeological potential and limitations of zooarchaeology, enhancing your ability to critically interpret archaeological animal bone data.

For students the short course will provide a firm basis for further training and is a great opportunity to improve your employability by broadening  the types of archaeological evidence you have skills in and experience using. Zooarchaeologists at the early stages of their careers may also be interested. Tuition fees for the course are 150 waged, 100 unwaged/student/retired.

For more information and to register, please visit our website: or e-mail us on: [log in to unmask]


With best wishes,
The Sheffield Zooarchaeology Team
