Forensic Anthropology of the Human Skeleton


Course description

This course will examine topics of forensic anthropology and teach you how to create an individual profile for unidentified human skeletal remains in a medico-legal context. Lectures are followed by hands-on lab exercises, in which we explore what happens to bodies when they decay, learn how to  identify the deceased, study causes of death and practice processing outdoor crime scenes. This will involve the handling of human remains. One session takes place outside (rain or shine on the UVic campus) and will involve crouching, as well as searching on the hands and knees.

(Please note the dates are different than published in the calendar.)
