Forensic anthropologists can determine many important details from studying a person's bones, such as age, gender, ancestry, height, and sometimes even occupation and cause of death. Learn about the techniques forensic anthropologists use to solve ancient cases, such as what killed Ötzi the Iceman five thousand years ago, and modern crimes against humanity, including identifying remains of victims of terrorist attacks and genocide. Also find out what schools offer training in forensic anthropology and related fields and typical salary ranges for a forensic anthropologist.
