Osteoarchaeology and Paleopathology




NOTICE: For the first time, this year the program will be activated in distance learning mode.


The Summer School in Osteoarchaeology and Paleopathology is an academic program aimed at training students in anthropological and paleopathological laboratory methods. It is an outstanding opportunity for students to gain experience in bioarchaeological investigation.

The Summer School will take place over the course of 3 weeks, in order to provide students with the basic knowledge of skeletal anatomy, physical anthropology and paleopathology necessary to approach osteological analyses.

The lectures will be taken in streaming using some platforms such as Google Teams, which has been adopted by the University of Pisa, in order to permit students to stay at home, while learning the basics of bioarchaeology and paleopathology disciplines. The majority of lectures will be run using bone casts and osteoarchaeological specimens, while scientific papers, handbooks and other documentation will be provided to the participants.


The school is designed to provide all participants with an in-depth knowledge about the analysis of ancient human skeletal remains. Biological profile reconstruction is aimed at obtaining the greatest possible amount of information on the environment, lifestyle, and diseases that afflicted past populations.

Who can apply

Students in Physical Anthropology, Archaeology, Bioarchaeology, Forensic Science, Paleopathology and allied disciplines at undergraduate and graduate levels.

The organizers reserve the right to cancel the summer school if fewer than 7 students are enrolled.



Program Intensity

The lectures will be taken for 3 weeks for about 4 hours per day (50 hours in total) with a timetable that will be established on the basis of the time zone of the participants.
