OOOS Odense Occasional Osteology Seminars

In order to promote research, ADBOU runs a series of seminars called "the Odense Occasional Osteology Seminars" (OOOS) .

OOOS XXXV: Excavation of human skeletal remains

Time: Thursday 6th October 2016, 09:00 – 16:30

Place: ADBOU, Lucernemarken 20, 5260 Odense S

Why excavate human remains? What archaeological methods are used? How are the skeletal remains examined? How is data analysed? What research collaboration between archaeology, anthropology and natural sciences can excavations of human skeletal remains result in? Such questions will be discussed at the seminar.

We suggest the establishment of a network of archaeologist, anthropologist and scientist from natural sciences with an interest in excavation of human skeletal remains.
