If you have ever broken a bone or been to the dentist for a cavity, you likely have that in common with millions of people. Many of the things that can impact your bones and teeth are experienced worldwide. However, every aspect of your skeleton is unique to you. In many ways, your skeleton tells the story of your life. Forensic anthropologists can help tell this story by examining skeletal remains. Students in this course will learn about the human skeleton, and skills forensic anthropologists use, such as how to identify biological sex, age, trauma, and pathological conditions in bones. While popularized in television, we will explore some of the misconceptions surrounding what forensic anthropologists can and cannot do. Applications of these methods will be discussed in research, in case studies from actual investigations, and in historical work.


Alexandra Rocca completed her MA in Anthropology at the U of A in 2019. She is an instructor with the Department of Anthropology and has worked with the forensic anthropologist of Northern Alberta on active forensic cases.
