The "Fr. I. Rainer" Institute`s Laboratory of Human Osteology is dedicated to the study of the human bones from archaeological sites. Our collections contain about 7000 skeletons dated from Upper Paleolithic to 19th century and another 6800 skulls from Rainer Osteological Collection (20th century individuals; about 60% of them with known age, sex, cause and date of death, place of birth and death, job). The laboratory has a large collection of pathological specimens, about 500 pieces in Rainer Collection and more that in the archaeological one (hydrocephaly, gunshot trauma, fractures, tuberculosis, syphilis, bone tumors, artificial deformed skulls, leprosy, and dysplasia). Besides anthropological reports on the skeletal collections, the laboratory offers theoretical and practical education in bioarchaeology.
