Posted on: 9th February 2016
Two archaeology experts from Bournemouth University visited the College recently to run a session on human remains.
Postgraduate researcher Hannah Haydock delivered a presentation on the subject, with senior lecturer Emma Jenkins also in attendance to answer questions.
After the presentation students took part in a number of activities, including determining causes of death by examining bones.
Student Drew Burdge Carter said afterwards: “I found it really interesting. There was some great information about furthering a career in archaeology.”
Sophia Jundi, Brock lecturer in Archaeology and Classical Civilisation, said: “I’m really pleased we have such great connections with Bournemouth University. This has been a fabulous opportunity.”
Emma Jenkins added: “It’s been so nice to be able to bring along a practical activity to encourage the students.”
Hannah Haydock, who gave the presentation, said: “I find it so interesting that we have a direct connection with our ancestors. We can look at a skeleton and discover how they lived hundreds of years ago.”
