A Companion to Forensic Anthropology

A Companion to Forensic Anthropology explores the latest theoretical and methodological work in the field, and includes thorough and up-to-date bibliographies. A wide range of international experts provide a comprehensive assessment of the field of forensic anthropology. The Companion details how forensic professionals construct human skeletal biological profiles and explores important new work on skeletal; trauma analysis, forensic taphonomy, and statistical validation of forensic analytical methods. The contributors explain the methods and techniques of forensic archaeology, including the preservation of context at surface-scattered remains, buried bodies, and fatal fire scenes. The Companion also offers new perspectives on facial reconstruction; recovery and identification issues related to large-scale mass disaster scenes; mass grave excavation; and human rights goals and practices throughout the world.
