Searching Techniques in Forensic Anthropology


Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2014 in the subject Medicine - Pathology, Nottingham Trent University, course: Reading Course, language: English, abstract: This report reviews the literature on the techniques used to locate human remains and clandestine graves that are used by forensic anthropologists and investigators. This paper critically examines multiple techniques including Human Remains Detection Dogs, Ground Penetrating Radar, Resistivity Surveys, Remote Sensing, Probing, Taphonomy, Soil Gas Survey and Civilian searches, to determine their advantages, disadvantages, reliability and credibility in locating clandestine graves. There is currently no one method that is successful in every condition and geographical location. But with the development of technology and with a multidisciplinary approach, researchers will be able to develop a method that will work in every condition in all geographical locations, help bettering law enforcement.
