This webinar was very beneficial to know about the interpretation procedure of the crime scene. Ms. Perdikaris made the content of lecture to be concise and understandable.
Forensic archaeology involves several principles, practices, and protocols for documenting and analyzing outdoor evidence, including those found at complex crime scenes, like searching for evidence at large-scale scenes, surface-scattered remains, buried body features, fatal fires, and mass disaster scenes.
Scene recovery protocols require:
Accurate documentation of the scene includes taking into consideration specific locations, local flora and fauna, environmental factors, geographic challenges, geological conditions, etc.
A detailed representation of the spatial distribution of the evidence in the form of symbols, drawings, and text is necessary in order to establish its association with other evidence and with a specific incident.
Forensic anthropology is the application of analytical skills pertaining to a body or skeleton within a forensic context.
These analytical skills include:
Understanding the processes and effects of decay on the body
Extracting information pertaining to age, sex, stature, and pathology
In this webinar on "Culture Matters: Archaeology, Environment, & Forensics Interpretation", you will learn how forensic science can help uncover the mysteries of the past and shed light on cultural heritage.
