Description
Paleopathology is the study of disease and its process among ancient peoples using primary evidence from Human Skeletal remains. Additional lines of inquiry draw on archaeological, ethnographical, clinical and documentary sources to aid in our interpretation. In this course you will learn how to recognize abnormal bone, differentiate between disease processes, describe abnormal bone changes, evaluate recording methods and investigate the epidemiological history of various disease processes. The impact of disease upon the individual and ancient societies will be considered throughout the course and in student research. The combined lecture, seminar and laboratory format provides a comprehensive foundation of skeletal pathology, experience with recording methods and an understanding of the impact of disease on the individual and their community.
