    Abstract

    Physical anthropology has long been a necessary part of criminal investigation. Archaeology, which is another branch of anthropology, has rarely, if ever, been used even when the investigations involved a buried body. The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate the value of using modern archaeological techniques as an aid in investigations made necessary by the search for or the discovery of burials, either skeletonized or partly decomposed.
