We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
This course emphasises the study of archaeological human remains within their funerary context.
It builds upon the School's extensive research in human osteology and palaeopathology and related research expertise in field archaeology, archaeozoology, molecular archaeology and archaeological biogeochemistry.
