This six-part series will examine topics of forensic anthropology and concepts relating to the recovery and analysis of unidentified human remains in a medico-legal context. Through online lectures and lab exercises, we will explore: the ethical treatment of human remains, how bodies decay in various environments, how to personally identify the deceased, and causes of death. You will examine real human remains from actual forensic cases, and use your skills of deductive reasoning to determine what happened to these individuals, and who they might be.
