Workshop Summary

In this session students will get to examine real human bones to determine how archaeologists can detect age and sex. They will also look at what human bodies can tell us about diet and disease in the past. This session is delivered on campus in the Wolfston Lab at Newcastle University and is suitable for GCSE and A Level archaeology, biology, history students.
