ANTH 239 - Forensic Anthropology & Bioarchaeology

Semester Offered: Spring
0.5 unit(s)
Forensic anthropology is the application of physical anthropology to medical or legal issues, such as crimes. This course introduces students to the basic methods of forensic anthropology, including how age, sex, race, and height of an individual can be determined from their bones. Recognition of skeletal anomalies can also reveal past health conditions and the cause and manner of death. Students gain experience in applying these methods by working with real and synthetic human bones. Readings also cover bioarchaeology, the analysis of human remains that are older than or outside of the medico-legal context.  Jess Beck.
