Example text

It can be stated rather confidently that forensic anthropology was born and took its first and more important steps in the United States of America; maybe not necessarily as a concept, but at least as an actual professional field, with a cohesive, constant, and independent body of practitioners, rather than as an additional task for other professionals, such as forensic pathologists. Forensic anthropology, though often presented as a relatively young discipline given its formal configuration and recognition in the 1970s, has a rich history in the USA, spanning most of the twentieth century.

Dental comparison was attempted next. If this proved fruitless, often the remains were taken to artists for facial reproduction, usually via molding of clay over the cranial remains. Only as a last resort were anthropologists sought, often by calling the local university for someone familiar with human osteology, to reevaluate components of the biological profile to help narrow down the missing person list. Perhaps the age, sex, stature, or ancestry determined by the police, pathologist, dentist, or sculptor was wrong!

CABO “the forensic anthropologist cannot discuss the cause and manner of death”? And they even want to look at the weapon too, as if you did not have tool-mark analysts for that. Some modern physical anthropologists equally may be troubled by the view of the field presented in this book. Wasn’t forensic anthropology supposed to be just a direct application of physical anthropology techniques and, hence, once you knew your human osteology and general physical anthropology, you were ready to take on forensic cases?
