A woke university faces ridicule after slapping a trigger warning on one of its archaeology courses - alerting students they may see images of human remains.

The bizarre flag came from the University of York on its Communicating Archaeology module which starts in September.

Department heads risked being accused of patronising its budding Indiana Joneses over the warning of content surely expected on a course of its nature.

The module – led by Dr Colleen Morgan – is described as ‘providing skills needed to communicate archaeological research to a variety of audiences’.

But it warned prospective learners: ‘Content Warning: This module occasionally shows images and videos of human remains’.

MP Andrew Bridgen - who has previously hit out against little-needed trigger warnings and censorship - said it was absurd.
