Description:

Designed to accompany Introduction to Forensic Anthropology: A Textbook, Fourth Edition by Byers (Allyn & Bacon, 2007) this laboratory manual provides students in academic laboratory courses hands-on experience with the major processes of forensic anthropology.This unique, step-by-step workbook introduces students to all the procedures of the forensic anthropology protocol while providing even, balanced coverage of the core topics. Tear-out exercise worksheets reinforce the methodologies of forensic anthropology and enhance student comprehension. Each chapter contains detailed explanations of the terminology, osteological features, and measurements needed to understand each of the topics covered. Chapters may be covered in one session or multiple sessions and lists of basic and optional lab materials are provided in chapter openers, enabling instructors to tailor each lab to the resources available. (Helpful notes to instructors are provided at the end of each chapter.)
