你将学到什么

Interpret a range of on-site evidence above and below ground and draw your own conclusions.

Explain how skeleton science can develop biographies of individuals.

Evaluate the impact of archaeological science, for example dating techniques and isotopic analysis.

Compare the differing contributions of archaeology and history in understanding past events.

Debate and report on the issues around the reburial of human remains from archaeological sites.

课程概况

In November 2013 archaeologists observing building work near Durham Cathedral in England made an unexpected discovery: skeletons in two mass graves. Over the next two years, researchers worked to establish the identity of the human remains. Today we know them to be Scottish prisoners who died after the Battle of Dunbar on the coast of Scotland in 1650.

On this course you will learn how the latest archaeological science techniques revealed how and why these men disappeared from history. You will join researchers seeking to solve a 350 year old mystery, and explore the resulting controversies.

课程大纲

The discovery of the soldiers and the evidence gathered from maps, historic buildings and the archaeology at the site.

The study of their human remains and the information extracted about pathologies, trauma and medieval conditions.

The role of archaeological science (radiocarbon, isotopes) in revealing more about life in the 17th century.

The historical background to the battle of Dunbar and its wider political context.

The fate of the survivors and prisoners of war sent across the Atlantic.

The controversy over repatriation, the reburial of the human remains and archaeological ethics.

面向人群

This course is for anyone interested in history or archaeology. It will be of particular interest to those in (or interested in) the North East of England, Scotland, and the United States; descendants of the Dunbar survivors; and those working in archaeology and heritage.
