Bones: Dead People Do Tell Tales

Booktalk: All bones tell a story–you just have to know how to read them. See how forensic anthropologists do it.
Snippet: Forensic anthropology uses the scientific study of humans to answer legal questions. “Forensic” comes from a Latin word referring to the forum.

The term forensic science has come to mean science used in a court of law or the justice system.
