In a comment on the previous post, Sc0tt asked where he could find a copy of Chris’ thesis. I’m sorry to say that it’s not currently publicly available. You can ask Chris if he’ll send you one, I suppose. If you’re seriously interested in that sort of thing, though, I highly recommend reading Bones, by Douglas Ubelaker or Dead Men Do Tell Tales, by William R. Maples and Michael Browning. Both are non-fiction books on forensic anthropology and will tell you all the gory details about the science. If you like to watch The New Detectives on The Discovery Channel or Forensic Investigators on TLC, I promise that you’ll thoroughly enjoy reading these.
