Forensic Anthropology - HLTH701

This unit provides the students with an in-depth understanding of the changes to the human body, in a forensic context, from death until discovery. An emphasis will be placed on the biological variability of human remains to assist in the identification of remains. Students will explore the differences between human and non-human remains and they will be taught to take osteometric measurements for the purpose of biological profiling. Students will gain experience in case work by completing an analysis of a set of remains and will present this as a mock case report for court.
