DM Osteology is particularly interested in working with community archaeology groups and museums with archaeological collections across the country. I offer very competitive rates to suit limited budgets.

I am able to advise on:

  • Current legislation regarding human remains.

  • Applications for exhumation licenses.

  • Best practice on the treatment of human remains.

  • On site advice on excavation and recording techniques.

  • Advice on suitable packing materials, labelling and recording.

  • Cleaning and storage of human remains.

  • Advice on use of specialist services, such as carbon dating, stable isotope
    analysis, DNA.


I offer:

  • Digital recording of burials and excavated human remains

  • Post excavation osteological reports.

  • Basic osteology training for community and museum volunteers.

  • Presentations to museum and community groups on excavation and post excavation analysis.


I ensure that all work carried out to standards defined by the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists and the British Association of Biological Anthropology and Osteoarchaeology codes of practice and ethics.
