Group of Roman skulls 43-410 AD

This summer, we will be hosting Close to the bone at the Museum of London Docklands, alongside the Roman Dead exhibition which opens on 25 May. This workshop has been tailored to complement the varied and intriguing artefacts shown in the exhibition, which looks at funerary rituals, beliefs and different burial practices in London 2,000 years ago.

Immerse yourself in this hands-on workshop where you will learn different ways and techniques of identifying biological profiles of individual skeletons, as well as exploring unique details inside the Roman Dead exhibition with our exhibition trail. Explore 2D and 3D facial reconstruction techniques with the guidance and knowledge of professionals from Sherlock Bone.

You'll also learn all about the work, processes and ethics behind the Museum of London’s Centre of Human Bioarchaeology, which was established in 2003 to curate and research the human remains excavated in the City and the Greater London area. With over 20,000 pieces of human remains in the museum's collection, our Curator of Human Osteology, Dr. Rebecca Redfern, will share studies and insights resulting from this unique and captivating collection with you.
