Summary

Forensic anthropologists may be consulted when human remains are found at an archaeological excavation or at a crime scene. Here's a look at how anthropologists analyze skeletal remains to learn about the deceased—their age and gender, how they may have lived, and their overall state of health prior to death. Featuring full-color photographs from actual forensic cases, this book provides specific information on procedures, tools of the trade, and the science behind this fascinating field, as well as the challenges faced by today's practitioners.
