ANTH 4423:Bone Biomechanics

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: ANTH 3320  
This course examines the mechanical properties of our skeletal organ system. The study of skeletal biology and biomechanics allow anthropologists to understand the function of the skeleton and how it can be used to interpret the lifeways of past peoples. Research from this field is key to the study of paleopathology, prehistoric subsistence strategies, locomotion, and bone trauma.
