The School of Anthropology and Conservation are delighted to invite you to attend the launch of our new Skeletal Biology Research Centre. The Centre is the first and only UK-based Centre focusing on the analysis of biological hard tissues (bones and teeth). It brings together innovative research, novel methodologies and international collaborations already established within Biological Anthropology in the School, with expertise and resources from Physical Sciences and Biosciences at Kent, and the Powell-Cotton Museum. The Centre carries out cutting-edge research ranging from analyses of the most important human fossils, histological studies of teeth and bone, isotopic analyses and dietary reconstruction, virtual 3D analyses of the skeleton, and forensic identification that together ultimately aim to better understand humans and our evolutionary history.

We are pleased to be welcoming  Dr. María Martinón-Torres from University College London to present the lecture for the launch. Dr Martinón-Torres will be speaking on “The Atapuerca sites: One million years of human evolution in Europe”.

This event is open to SAC PG students and staff. Please note booking for this event is required.  For further details and to book a place please contact Dr Alexandra Leduc-Pagel (
