Human burials can inform us about social organization, health, and lived experiences in the past. In this course, we will discuss the ways in which cemeteries and skeletons unlock secrets about life in London from the Roman Period through the Victorian Era. We will also discuss the ethics of displaying human remains, and who “owns” the past. This course has an international travel component, which involves traveling to London to visit museums, cemeteries, and archaeological sites.
