Summary:
Links have recently been established between the study of death assemblages by archaeologists and paleontologists (taphonomy) and the application of physical anthropology concepts to the medicolegal investigation of death (forensic anthropology). This book explains these links in a broad-based, multidisciplinary volume. It applies taphonimic models in modern forensic contexts and uses forensic cases to extend  Read more...
