When an investigation involves buried, or even scattered, human remains, archeological field methods are useful in recovering the remains, as well as reconstructing the exact circumstances of their deposition. Many forensic physical anthropologists have sufficient training (and inclination) to do their own archeology, while others prefer to call on colleagues for assistance in such cases. For several years, the editors have taught a course in forensic archeology and conducted various workshops on the subject. This handbook seems to have developed from these activities.
