To apply existing knowledge of human skeletal anatomy and pathological conditions to independent analysis;
To recognise pathological conditions and identify what injuries or diseases could have been the cause;
To assess the range of normal human skeletal morphological variation to accurately determine pathological changes;
To increase knowledge about science-based approaches within the field of osteoarchaeology;
To refine critical thinking skills.
To be determined individually.
