What can human bones tell us of a person's life, or even death? How
can information from bones solve mysteries both modern and ancient?
And what makes the study of skeletonised human remains so
imperative in southern Africa? The answers to these and other
questions are contained in Missing & murdered, which lays bare
the fascinating world of forensic anthropology. As the popularity
of TV programmes such as the CSI trilogy and Silent Witness
attests, people are fascinated by forensic science as a means of
solving crimes, and in this book Alan G. Morris follows the pathway
into forensics via the fields of anthropology and anatomy. He makes
the practice of forensic anthropology, the skills base of skeletal
biology and the study of archaeological skeletons hugely accessible
to the layperson in a series of fascinating cases, from muti
murders and political killings to the work of the Missing persons
