Description

In an effort to learn more about the physical aspects of humankind, both past and present, anthropologists developed methods and techniques to evaluate human skeletal remains, techniques that apply in modern forensic (criminal) investigations. Using cases from my own research, this lecture introduces the audience to those scientific methods and techniques through digital images of actual human bones from ancient Egypt, some as old as the pyramids themselves. Participants will learn basic steps in determining a female from a male, younger from older, and what the bones can tell us about the person. A highlight of the lecture is a re-examination of a possible 3,300 year-old murder case. Appropriate for older middle school students and above, and for all adults.

This lecture is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Contact Chris Maloney at the Ocean City Free Public Library for more information.
