Have you ever analysed cremated human remains?

Both cremated and burned human remains are considered material requiring specialised attention, out of the scope of your everyday osteologists.

Or would you like to learn how properly excavate and document cremated burial from an archaeological site? The Cremains Workshop presents the unique opportunity to learn about the process of burning and then cremating human body as well as a practical solution for excavation, documentation and analysis of the findings.
