This ten (10) day course will introduce participants, including law enforcement investigators, medicolegal professionals, and university students to the principles, practices and methods of Forensic Archaeology and Forensic Taphonomy as applied to the outdoor forensic scene. Video lectures and virtual practical exercises involving crime scene mapping and recovery of mock outdoor crime scenes will be used to describe state-of-the-art methods available to investigators during the documentation and recovery of physical evidence, including human remains, from a variety of outdoor contexts, including large-scale searches, surface-scatters, and buried body features.
Informative video training vignettes related to the production of the hand-drawn map, the use of the electronic total station, survey-grade GPS, and aerial drone documentation, among many others will be presented. Focus will be on the interpretation of past activities at the outdoor Death Scene through Outdoor Crime Scene Reconstruction.
This course has been presented each summer for the last 28 years and represents the longest running short course devoted exclusively to forensic anthropology and forensic archaeology in the world.
