Forensic anthropology is a specialized field that uses the science of physical anthropology and osteology (the study of bones) to assist the law in identifying deceased individuals whose remains are decomposed, burned, or otherwise unrecognizable. Forensic anthropologists are often able to determine the age, sex, stature, and ancestry of the deceased, as well as analyze any trauma or disease. In gripping graphic nonfiction format, Corpses and Skeletons: The Science of Forensic Anthropology uses real-life cases to show how forensic anthropologists provide law enforcement with concrete data to help narrow down the possible identity of deceased individuals.
