This Sanisera Field School course does not include excavation, but centers exclusively on the study and teaching of osteology using the remains recovered from the prehispanic pyramid of Huallamarca, Lima, Perú, dated between the 11th – 15th centuries AD.
Participants will learn to draw conclusions and reconstruct aspects of the population’s demographics such as pathologies, illnesses, etc. Because this course is specifically centered on biological anthropological concepts, this course is limited to 8 participants in order to best assimilate and apply anthropological concepts.
Previous knowledge or experience in archaeology or computer systems is not required.
