Students on the Human Osteoarchaeology programme will become part of an active osteological community who originate from many parts of the world.
We get many students from the US and Canada and from various parts of Europe.
The University of Edinburgh has a large teaching collection of archaeological human skeletal remains as well as superb range of casts and equipment. We have a new dedicated Archaeology teaching lab that students can use outwith normal teaching hours for self-directed study. The University of Edinburgh also offers excellent library facilities.
Students on the Human Osteoarchaeology programme will join a community of staff, research students and other taught MSc students, linked by a common interest in osteology. The community currently consists of five members of staff, ten PhD students and thirty-five students on the Osteoarchaeology, Human Osteoarchaeology and Forensic Anthropology MSc programmes. There are frequent lectures and seminars from guest speakers, and many opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activites, such as washing skeletal material, creating skeletal inventories, visiting to museums, and study trips abroad.
