PLEASE NOTE Tuesday 2nd and 9th March dates have now sold out so new dates added

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!

This is a course of 2 workshops held over two weeks via Zoom. One ticket admits buyers to both weeks of the course. Individual weeks not sold separately. These tickets will admit the attendee to the Tuesday evening classes.

Week 1: Tuesday 16th March, 7pm-8:30pm (approx).
Week 2: Tuesday the 23rd March, 7pm-8:30pm (approx).

We will email attendees with the Zoom meeting code by 3pm the day before the first class. If you have not received your login details by this time please check your spam mail. If you have any problems please email museum@rcsed.ac.uk.
We will record each session and send them out to all attendees for anyone who cannot make a live session or for those who would like to watch again. These recordings will be available for 1 week.
