Understanding Zooarchaeology ShortcoursePosted: July 24, 2011
I’ll be helping with the teaching once again on the final ‘Understanding Zooarchaeology’ short course of 2011. It will run from 12th – 14th September 2011 at the Department of Archaeology, University of Sheffield.
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: http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/archaeology/research/zooarchaeology/short-course.html or e-mail us.
