Written in Bone: An Introduction to Forensic and Bio-archaeology

Rainer Grün, Griffith University

Discover what’s written in the bones of human skeletal remains

A human skeleton is uncovered. Who was this person? What is their story?

Through human skeletal analysis, we are able to read the story behind a skeleton and tell the sex, age and ethnicity of the person who passed away.

On this course, you’ll gain an introduction to some of the key techniques and approaches that are used in human skeletal analysis.

You’ll use case studies to uncover their stories and explore some of the ethical issues that surround the analysis of human remains.

This course would suit anyone interested in forensic archaeology or anthropology. It may be of particular interest to students of archaeology, and those involved in police work, or with investigating human remains.
