This one week online credited program teaches students how to excavate and assess human remains. Taught from the surroundings of the Irish National Heritage Park (see here) the Dead Men Do Tell Tales course is designed for students from a variety of academic backgrounds with an interest in osteoarchaeology and physical/forensic anthropology.

Topics covered during lab sessions include: human and comparative osteology; determining sex, approximate age-at-death, living stature, identifying palaeopathological conditions and understanding how these techniques are used in archaeological and forensic contexts. The course is delivered by some of the foremost archaeological and bioarchaeological experts in Ireland (see here for biographies).
