Dead People DO Tell Tales

Series: True Forensic Crime Stories

By Sara L. Latta

All bones tell a story—you just have to know how to read them. Forensic anthropologists can tell if found bones are from a human or an animal, are male or female, and how a person lived and died. Discover the techniques forensic anthropologists are using to solve both modern and ancient crimes!
