Praise for Bone Remains
“This engaging book shows how science and human experiences come together in Manhein’s efforts to resolve cold cases. Readers will encounter the reality of practice in forensic anthropology skillfully related by an accomplished professional.”—Douglas H. Ubelaker, author of Bones: A Forensic Detective’s Casebook
“In Bone Remains, the reality of forensic anthropology comes to life for the reader. The nitty-gritty of human identification using anthropology is combined with stories from families and investigators to tell the whole story.”—Robert E. Barsley, former president of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences
“Mary H. Manhein again shows that bones talk to her and that she hears what they are saying. She delightfully describes in Bone Remains how anthropologists and other scientists work in the field and in the laboratory to identify the dead, to help solve cold cases, and to clarify remote historical mysteries. A must for the forensically inclined.”—Michael M. Baden, MD, former chief medical examiner, New York City
