Forensic analysis has become and will continue to be a complicated and highly specialized field of study. Forensic investigations require teams of specialists from many different scientific fields in addition to legal and law enforcement personnel. Of the many specialties that are used in death investigations, forensic anthropology is most often associated with the analysis of skeletalized human remains.
This volume provides guidelines for determining when to include and how to choose a forensic anthropologist in your investigations. The Use of Forensic Anthropology is written with the assumption that the reader is not a trained anthropologist, and goes by the premise that most law enforcement professionals simply want to know how a forensic anthropologist is going to help them do their job. Many examples and anecdotes are offered by the authors, who strive to keep the text at a clear, readable level that is informative yet enjoyable to read. Jargon is purposefully kept to a minimum, but when it is used it is defined in context so that a common use and understanding of the terms can be achieved.
Coroners, medical examiners, pathologists, crime scene investigators, local and state police, and anyone working in a crime laboratory can benefit from this easy to understand guide on when to use and how to choose a forensic anthropologist.
