        Grave School Lessons

        Students learn about how forensic anthropologists study the process of human decomposition to understand and solve real-life situations, including murder and mishaps, how a person died and what happened to their remains. Forensic osteological research facilities are outdoor compounds where donated human bodies are studied during decomposition. Using archeological field techniques, researchers discover what happens to human remains when exposed to a number of different environmental conditions over certain time intervals. Studying these skeletal remains in different contexts prove extremely beneficial in solving real-life humanitarian and criminal cases.
