School of Anthropology and Conservation – New Workshops

The School of Anthropology and Conservation are pleased to announce a new programme of workshops for students at University of Kent Partner and KMPF schools.

The workshops are designed to introduce participants to the fields of Anthropology and Conservation and will be of particular interest to students studying geography and science in years 9 to 13. The workshops are delivered by experienced academic staff and postgraduate students and can be organised both in-school and on-campus. Topics include:

  • You are what, and where, you eat – Using a technique called stable isotope analysis to investigate what humans ate in the past from chemical elements in their bones!
  • Which diseases can we see in the skeletons? – Paleopathology is the study of ancient diseases; evidence of many diseases can be found in our teeth and bones
  • What is anthropology? – Anthropology is the study of various aspects of humans within societies of the past and present. Social anthropology and cultural anthropology study the norms and values of societies. Linguistic anthropology studies how language affects social life. Biological or physical anthropology studies the biological development of humans
