This is an intensive osteology and bioarchaeology lab methods course in Croatia offered in cooperation with the Institute for Anthropological Research in Zagreb. This is a course offered through Mississippi State University listed as Human Osteology (AN4313/4316) and can be taken at either the undergraduate (4313) or graduate (6313 level). It will run from May 11-June 13, 2020. In addition to learning the skeleton, there will be a focus on bioarchaeological methods such as age at death and sex estimation and the analysis of trauma using the amazing collections at the Institute. You'll also get to live in beautiful Zagreb for a month and explore one of the most beautiful places on earth on weekends. I’ve arranged for guest speakers focusing on molecular methods, culture history, and Croatian identity and conflict. Mario Novak and Ivor Jankovic have also arranged for a visit to a local hospital to see imaging in action, a guided trip to the Krapina site and museum, and a tour through the Archaeological Museum Zagreb.

To apply, follow the link (Bioarchaeology in Croatia I) and instructions on the website. Non-MSU students are encouraged to apply!
