Content

Forensic Anthropology serves the investigative and judicial communities by analysing human remains for medicolegal purposes. It is a specialised area of science that requires detailed anatomical and osteological training. Being able to assign a name to the deceased is critical to the successful outcome of all legal investigations, and this becomes increasingly complex as the body passes through the various transitional phases of decomposition. Forensic Anthropology has adopted a pivotal role in both UK and international investigations being core to issues of repatriation, mass disasters and war crimes.

The University of Dundee offered the first undergraduate training course in Forensic Anthropology in the UK.
