Anthropological Workshop
(associated with the Session “(INTER)RELATING TO THE DEAD”)
Organiser: Michaela BINDER | Karin WILTSCHKE-SCHROTTA, Austria

On site sampling and sampling strategies when working with human remains

This workshop will cover two aspects:

  • To show unusual biological objects one could find excavating skeletal human remains; the aim is to raise awareness to the variety of possible objects related to the corpse and
  • To give an introduction of the state of art of invasive sampling techniques, discuss the connected problems and to find strategies to minimize the damage.

We have limited space – 20 participants max.

Location: Naturhistorisches Museum Wien
