Forensic anthropology is an applied subfield of biological anthropology that provides expert analysis of the skeleton in legal and police-work settings by utilizing methods developed in skeletal biology, archaeology, and the forensic sciences. Forensic anthropologists play critical roles to identify victims of homicides (both historical and recent), mass fatalities resulting from both natural and human-made disasters, human rights abuses, war deaths, and to assist in determining the cause of death. Introduces students to the underlying theory and the applied techniques that forensic anthropologists use to recover and identify individuals and assess what happened to the individual before and after death.
