Forensic anthropology is the
application of physical or biological
anthropology in a legal context.

The majority of cases encountered
by a forensic anthropologist involve
the human skeleton. The routine
activities of the forensic
anthropologist extend to the
examination of badly decomposed
or severely damaged human bodies.
Forensic anthropologists are also
called on in the search and
recovery of human remains.
