At the Department of Bioarchaeology we conduct research and teach courses in archaeozoology, anthropology and archaeobotany. Bioarchaeology is an integral part of any archaeological research, especially helpful in the reconstruction of human and environmental relations throughout history. We conduct analyzes of animal, human and plant remains, reconstructing the economy, living conditions, diet, health or origin of animals, humans and plants, as well as the environment, trade, intercultural contacts and issues related to worship and religion. We work with many archaeological missions in Poland and abroad, in Europe, as well as in Asia, Africa and South America.
