Law enforcement personnel are increasingly involved in the recovery of human skeletal remains. The collection of all skeletal elements is essential for an accurate assessment of trauma, identifying features or other biological identifiers such as age, sex and ancestry to identify the unknown.
This four day, intense, hands-on, short course teaches the anthropology and geo-mapping principles used in the search for clandestine burials and the recovery and analysis of the human skeletal remains. The course will include lectures and practical applications in anthropology and hands-on recovery activities.
This is an applied course using real human skeletons. Endurance in the recovery of the remains is required.
