September-October 2018 Advanced Field Experience in Bioarchaeology


The excavation of human burials is a sensitive undertaking that must be carried out with utmost professionalism. Specialized bioarchaeological training is essential to ensure that human burials are uncovered, documented, and removed properly, that is, without damaging the remains or destroying precious information. However, unless they have specialized in the excavation of human remains, even professional archaeologists may not always be up to the task.

This field-based program was developed specifically for advanced students and CRM professionals interested in furthering their professional training by acquiring bioarchaeological skills and experience.

By working in small groups, side-by-side with IRLAB’s professional team, participants will have the opportunity to excavate burials from start to finish. Upon completion of the program, participants will have learned how to properly identify, excavate, document, and remove human burials in archaeological context.

The Advanced Field Experience in Bioarchaeology will be comprised of two unique 2-week modules which can be take separately or combined for a full 4-week field experience from September 17th to October 12th, 2018. Qualified applicants are accepted on a first come, first served basis so apply today!
