ANTH 359 - Forensic Osteology and Bioarchaeology


A detailed study of the human skeleton provides the basis for learning techniques used in forensic anthropology and bioarchaeology. Age at death, sex, ancestry, stature, taphonomy and pathology are explored through lecture and hands-on activities. Specific applications of these techniques to forensic and archaeological contexts are presented, including forensic cases, mass disasters, human rights issues, repatriation, paleodemography and paleopathology.
