The project has provided a unique opportunity for members of the public to sign up for bone workshops in the dedicated osteology laboratory at the University of Bradford. Over a three year period from 2010 to 2013, adults had the chance to handle real human bones and to see for themselves how what we eat affects our body. The workshops were free and open to anybody over the age of 18. Registration to all our bone workshops was essential due to their popularity.
The project also offered two free bone workshops per year to primary schools in the Wakefield area, the last of these taking place in the summer of 2014. Funding for the schools workshops at the University of Bradford has now ended but the project still offers archaeology themed sessions to schools in the Wakefield area, via Skeleton Secrets at Wakefield Museum.
To get a flavour of what the bone workshops offered, read about the workshop we ran on 28 April 2012.
