Osteology Teaching Laboratory

The osteology teaching laboratory hosts all classes with focus on human skeletal remains: The Human Skeleton (336); Human Skeletal Biology (540); Forensic Anthropology (332); and Methods in Forensic Anthropology (544). Discussion sections for Introduction to Biological Anthropology (168) and Bones, Bugs, and Forensic Science (245) are also held here. Several human skeletons (infant through adult), casts, and comparative faunal specimens are used for learning and teaching skeletal anatomy, growth and development, trauma, pathology, and the biological profile. The lab is also equipped with reference books and several anatomical charts to supplement learning.
