MPhil Bioarchaeology / Programme details

Year of entry: 2019

Programme description

Palaeontological and archaeological remains provide a unique window to the past that is essential for understanding how organisms, including humans, evolve and respond to long-term environmental change.  Research within this area uses morphological, chemical and biomolecular studies of fossil and archaeological remains to investigate research questions concerning patterns of palaeobiodiversity, key evolutionary innovations such as flight and bipedalism, and the earliest genetic modifications of plants at the transition to farming.
