We all have a skeleton holding us up, but we may only think about it if it causes us problems. This two-week course with human remains conservator Cat Irving will examine the human skeleton using bones from Surgeons' Hall's collections. It will look at what bones are, what they do, what they can tell us about people's lives - and what happens when things go wrong.

No prior knowledge required!
