The popularity of TV programs such as the CSItrilogy attests to people’s fascination with forensic science as a means of solving crimes, and this book follows the pathway into forensics via the fields of anthropology and anatomy.Missing & Murderedexplains the practice of forensic anthropology and the skills base of skeletal biology, while at the same time debunking the ‘CSI effect’ (the phenomenon of popular television raising crime victims’ real-world expectations of forensic science, especially crime-scene investigation and DNA testing). From muti murders, criminal cases and the Missing Persons Task Team to the study of archaeological skeletons, Missing & Murderedwill grip and engross readers from one intriguing chapter to the next.
