FRS502 - Forensic Anthropology - Rural Crime Scenes

This course demonstrates how the principles of forensic anthropology and forensic archaeology are used in the positive identification of human beings. The theories and methodologies employed in the examination of human skeletal remains can determine such identifying traits as racial affinity, sexual morphology, stature, chronological age at time of death, elapsed time since death, and socio-economic status. Such identification is explored during lectures and in hands-on application in the lab.
