Bones are a powerful tool for forensic anthropologists. They can indicate age and gender, and a set of teeth or a fragment of bone can even show when a person died, as well as how long the body has been decomposing. Did the person die from natural causes or was it foul play? With the help of authorities, including the FBI and CIA, forensic anthropologists can find out the answers with a few small clues. Readers will be captivated by ancient and modern real-life cases. A chapter on careers allows students to dig deeper and find out what it takes to work in this fascinating field.
