Anthropology and forensic casework

A bone has been found by a dog walker, as a forensic anthropologist you are asked to determine whether or not the bone is human and if so give the police information about the sex, height and age of the individual.

This session is designed to interest students in the practical side of forensic science and how forensic science can be used to solve crimes by examining a potential crime scene.

Forensic specialists are often called upon to investigate missing persons cases, suspected burials and the discovery of bones. As a forensic archaeologist you will learn about techniques used to identify buried remains and exhume them.
