Osteoarchaeology Training Session – Young People aged 14-25

The Council for British Archaeology is partnering with English Heritage and The Society for the Study of Childhood in the Past (SSCIP) to deliver a free event, tailored for 14-25 year-olds. This session is specifically aimed at young people, whether they are YAC members or not.

The half-day training session will provide the opportunity to learn about the children who lived in medieval Barton, through an examination of their skeletal remains, excavated from the environs of St Peter’s Church. In this session, you will learn how to identify skeletal remains and evidence of disease (known as pathologies) often seen in the skeletons of young individuals from the medieval period. Throughout the course of the session, you will be supervised by an osteoarchaeologist who can answer your questions about the children of medieval Barton. If you love history and science, this is the event for you!

 Please note: real human remains will be used throughout this session.

This activity is being enabled by the National Lottery players via a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, as part of the Shout Out Loud project.
