Review of Studies in Crime: An Introduction to Forensic Anthropology
The subject of this book, written primarily by members of the faculty of Bradford University in England, is the value of archaeological and anthropological techniques in the field of forensic science. Although not a step-by-step guide of procedures, the methods used in forensic archaeology and forensic anthropology are thoroughly discussed. Though most case examples are from the United Kingdom, the information may have world wide application. This book could be useful to a university anthropology department library, especially one called upon by law enforcement agencies to aid in locating and/or recovering and identifying human remains. It might also be a useful reference for medical examiner/coroner offices.
