This paperback manual appears to have been written primarily for police crime scene investigators who might be faced with the task of recovering human skeletal material for possible criminal investigation. As such it will probably be useful in making crime scene investigators and police in general more aware of the problems that can arise subsequent to inadequate search and recovery efforts and the methods that are optimum for human skeletal recovery. It will also serve to explain the need for meticulous recovery practices and the kinds of information that can be expected from forensic anthropologists if such procedures are followed.
