NOTICE: To cope with the still ongoing restrictions on student mobility, our Summer School "Osteoarchaeology and Paleopathology" will be entirely held in distance learning mode.
It is an outstanding opportunity for students to gain experience in bioarchaeological investigation by working side-by-side with leading researchers in the field.
The lab-activities and lectures will be carried out at the Laboratory of Paleopathology (within the Medical School of Pisa).
The Osteoarchaeology and Paleopathology course from University of Pisa is designed to provide all participants with an in-depth knowledge about the analysis of ancient human skeletal remains. Biological profile reconstruction is aimed at obtaining the greatest possible amount of information on the environment, lifestyle, and diseases that afflicted past populations.
- The Summer School will take place over the course of 3 weeks, in order to provide students with the basic knowledge of skeletal anatomy, physical anthropology and paleopathology necessary to approach osteological analyses.
- The skeletal materials under examination include samples from Tuscan excavations dating back to the medieval ages. The activities will be completed under the supervision of the experienced staff of the Division of Paleopathology, with the supervision of Professor Gino Fornaciari.
