Events and courses
Since its official launch in 2003, the Centre for Human Bioarchaeology (CHB) has been involved in public outreach on a number of levels through a combination of tours, lectures, academic presentations, conferences, educational workshops and a taught course, 'The Bare Bones'.
In 2013, the Centre's staff, Jelena and Rebecca, will continue to make presentions at conferences and events. The Centre will also participate in a variety of outreach events at the museum, including the Family events programme.
A number of events and activities associated with the 'Doctors, Dissection and Ressurection Men' exhibition will also be hosted by Jelena Bekvalac.
For the past seven years, the Centre has been running a short evening course, targeted specifically at the public. The 'Bare Bones' course aims to provide a basic understanding of human skeletal anatomy and palaeopathology.
The Centre aims to build upon this relationship with the public, by continuing these activities and organising more events including further educational workshops, and new exhibitions in conjunction with external groups.
Festival of British Archaeology
For the last seven years, the Centre has taken part in what was the National Archaeology programme, now called Festival of British Archaeology. At times opening up its laboratory to the public and demonstrating how and what bioarchaeology can tell us about past populations.
