ARCS2003 – Forensics: The Archaeology of Death & Crime Scenes 76.7

Really good course. Very interesting content and was taught well by Adriana. It's a good complement with biom2020 as the osteology from biom2020 carries forward to arcs2003. Thus, it's a good course for those doing a biomedical major and wants an easier workload. Make sure you do the weekly readings and create small summaries with the main concepts every week as they are assessed on the EOS exam.

Best archaeology course! Even if you're not interested in it as a career still a must do to all students!
Everything is on blackboard, course content is interesting, awesome and very helpful lecturer, hands on work, assessment isn't too horrible and it's all spread out throughout the semester. Only downfall would be the one hour labs. Would love to spend more time in the class, that's how great it is.
