ANTH 6325 - Introduction to Osteology I: Human-Animal Interactions


Credits: 3

Explores the evolution of human and animal interactions through a comparative study and analysis of their skeletons. Examines variations in nature’s grand design, including the origins of different skeletal features, the evolution of these features over time, and the ways humans influenced the development of many of these features through processes such as targeted hunting and selective breeding. Introduces the science of taphonomy in hands-on learning labs. Students learn how isotopic and biomolecular analyses of animal skeletal remains helps in understanding human-animal interactions.
