THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF DEATH

This course will provide an introduction to the excavation, recording, analysis and interpretation of funerary remains. Students will be instructed in the handling and care of human skeletal material by an osteologist. The course will also explore the place of cemeteries and monuments in the wider landscape and the study of funerary assemblages as a whole, including graves, grave structures and fittings, grave goods and evidence associated with cremations. Emphasis will be placed on how to view all these elements as the visible remains of funeral ceremonies and on how we can seek to reconstruct those ceremonies as fully as possible.

An understanding of stratigraphy and the concept of ‘context’ is essential to anyone undertaking archaeological excavation. This course will provide clear instruction on both the theory of stratigraphy and practical ways in which it can be effectively recognised, recorded and interpreted.

These issues will be explored through a series of case studies from the UK, North Africa and elsewhere which will highlight the scale of the global threat to the world’s heritage. Different responses to preventing and reducing such threats will be considered. Practical guidance will be given on how best to protect sites and on how to deal with crime when it does happen, including forensic approaches to dealing with an archaeological crime scene. The course will be of interest to archaeologists, curators, local government officers, landowners and site custodians, members of the legal and law enforcement communities, and anyone with an interest in preserving our past for future generations.
