Human Osteology & Bioarchaeology Research Workshops Human Osteology & Bioarchaeology Research Workshops

Graduate and Undergraduate students - are you interested in attending human osteology and bioarchaeology research workshop opportunities?  If so, visit our website  www.archaeotek-archaeology.org 

Our osteology and bioarchaeology programs are designed to offer intensive, practical, hands on experience with human osteological remains, focusing primarily on research skill acquisition. They provide a very effective transition between the controlled teaching environment of an osteology academic lab and real "life" burial assemblages. As such, our programs offer an essential and necessary skill set to anyone pursuing a career in physical anthropology, bioarchaeology, forensics or medicine.

Keep in mind that the origin of our assemblages, Transylvania (Romania), is situated on the main historical communication and technological axes in and out of Europe as well as near massive deposits of salt, copper, tin, iron, gold and coal. As a result, it was a very dynamic zone of culture synthesis, generating a plethora of interacting and transitional cultural, social, economic and even natural environments. Our programs invite students and volunteers to explore and research the human physiological aspects of the genesis of European culture from the Iron Age to the Late Middle Ages as it developed on its most important historical frontier.

PROJECTS (see description below):

1. Bioarchaeology of Children - Juvenile Osteology Research Workshop: Victims of Change – Lost Churches Project
2. Commingled Remains Osteology Research Workshop:  Bioarchaeology and Zooarchaeology Approaches to Collective Burial Analysis (advanced)
3. Adult Osteology Research Workshop: Late Medieval "Crisis" Populations – The Remaking of the European Frontier

Bioarchaeology of Children: Victims of Change – Juvenile Osteology Research Workshop

Location: Odorheiu Secuiesc, Transylvania, Romania

Dates: July 5 – August 1, 2015

More information: http://www.archaeotek-archaeology.org/#!juvenile-osteology-research-workshop/cpqs

Contact e-mail: archaeology@archaeotek.org

Project Director: Dr. Jonathan Bethard (Forensic Anthropology Program, Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, Boston University School of Medicine)

Requirements: the Adult Osteology Workshop (or equivalent) strongly recommended but not required

Description - As the 15th century ends, the battle for Europe continues! The heroes (and their legend) that held back the Ottoman East have died: Vlad Dracula the Impaler  in 1476; Holy Stephan the Great in 1504; Skanderberg in 1468, opening the way for the Turkish expansion into Europe. The Saxon fortresses and the Szekely armies managed to hold the Ottomans at bay as the Principality of Transylvania was born in 1570. Turkish pressure combined with the struggle between Catholicism and Protestantism has generated an extraordinary environment that impacted the local populations in a variety of ways, both physiologically and socio-culturally. The aim of the osteology and bioarchaeology projects is to evaluate how major global political events impact physically the local Transylvanian populations. For that purpose, we will analyze the the relatively very well preserved human remains from ca. 150 children (ranging from prenatal to preadult) from four different cemeteries from central Transylvania (Romania), dating from the 16-17th centuries. Students will be taught how to identify fragmented bones, determine age, sex (when applicable), stature, identify pathologies, trauma and take standard measurements. At the same time, they will be introduced to various osteological conservation methods and problems aiming at properly evaluate bone quality for DNA and isotope analysis as well as the potential (and limits) of analytical methods to answer real research questions.

 

Commingled Remains Osteology Research Workshop - Bioarchaeology and Zooarchaeology Approaches to Collective Burial Analysis

Location: Simeria, Transylvania, Romania

Dates: July 5 – August 1, 2015

More information: http://www.archaeotek-archaeology.org/#!commingled-remains-research-workshop/clfm

Contact e-mail: archaeology@archaeotek.org

Project Directors: Dr. Anna Osterholtz and Daniel Lowery

Requirements: the Adult Osteology Workshop (or equivalent) required

Description - Commingled Remains Osteology Project: The imposing Magura Uroiului rock formation near Simeria (Southern Transylvania) stands as a natural fortress, overlooking all natural and man-made elements of the surrounding landscape. By its position, aspect, and its proximity to sources of salt, copper, iron, tin, gold as well as easy access to coal, it provided both the practical and mystical components to ensure an intensive and quite often specialized use throughout Prehistory, as shown by the Early Iron Age (Hallstatt) "funerary monument" which is the focus of the present study. This workshop is unique in its holistic focus. From excavation to cleaning to recording and data entry into a custom data base, participants will have a very unique field/lab-experience. Our participants will be involved with both the excavation and the analysis of a large commingled assemblage consisting of human and animal bone. As such, the students will identify and quantify skeletal remains and place them within a larger cultural context.

Adult Osteology Research Workshop: Late Medieval "Crisis" Populations – The Remaking of the European Frontier

Location: Odorheiu Secuiesc, Transylvania, Romania

Dates: June 7 – July 4, 2015

More information: http://www.archaeotek-archaeology.org/#!osteology/cslj

Contact e-mail: archaeology@archaeotek.org

Project Director: Dr. Jonathan Bethard (Forensic Anthropology Program, Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, Boston University School of Medicine)

Requirements: remaining spots are preferentially given to participants using this Workshop as a prerequisite for either the Juvenile Osteology Research Workshop or the Commingled Remains Osteology Research Workshop

Our projects are designed as intensive hands-on field experience programs and, as such, are open to both credit student and non-credit participants. For more information on this program, see attached brochures or visit www.archaeotek-archaeology.org.
