Fifteen Classical Civilisation and Latin students visited the University of Bradford on the 25th of February, to take part in an Archaeology workshop entitled “People in the Past”.
The students were given the opportunity to learn what bones can tell us about the age, gender, state of health of a person and how that person lived. The students studied synthetic skeletons in the laboratories, under the guidance of Bradford University lecturers and reported their findings back in small groups. They were asked to determine whether the skeleton was male or female and its height.
The Bradford University lecturers praised the enthusiasm and engagement of the students and the professional way they fed back their findings.
This visit was one of the many enhancement opportunities offered by the Classics department at Notre Dame.
