For BSc (Hons) Archaeology.
The Archaeology Taster Day will be split into two sessions: a morning session and an afternoon session.
Individuals and school groups are welcome to attend both sessions, or choose to attend either the morning or afternoon session.
Morning session (9:00 - 12:00)
Archaeology - People in the Past
This workshop will introduce you to the field of human osteology; how osteologists gather data from the skeleton, what information is recorded and how this information can be used to investigate past populations. The University of Bradford has an international reputation for teaching and research in human skeletal remains and this workshop will give you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in this area, with staff and researchers from Archaeological Sciences.
Afternoon session (13:00 - 16:00)
Archaeology, Landscapes and Climate Change
The relationship between past societies and the landscapes on which they relied for food, shelter and resources is a significant part of research at Bradford and encompasses a number of disciplines and techniques such as geography, geology, geophysics and computer-aided visualisation. This event will introduce this diverse and globally important topic and provide a hands-on session in which participants will explore a virtual landscape and discover how changes in the environment such as global warming have affected society in the past and how they could in the future.
