The analysis and identification of human remains from criminal and legal contexts has long been the focus of forensic anthropology. With skeletal analysis as the groundwork of the field, forensic anthropology has rapidly expanded into other areas of medicolegal investigation. Forensic anthropologists now apply their skills to body search and recovery techniques, taphonomic analysis, trauma interpretation, bone DNA, and mass disaster victim identification. This course uses hands-on laboratory sessions to teach basic techniques of skeletal analysis. Lectures provide the methodological basis of the osteological techniques and introduce additional applications of the field. Forensic pathologists, medicolegal investigators, forensic dentists, attorneys, and others involved in death investigation will find this course an excellent introduction to the field.
