Summary

Post-mortem identification of skeletal remains depends heavily on dentition and the identification of the skull. This book considers the various methods of identification describing the ways in which such methods may be integrated with other approaches for establishing identity. Video superimposition, radiographic and photographic superimposition, as well as computer and artist based modelling of faces from facial remains has led to rapid improvements in the techniques available for human facial identification. This book considers these issues together with legal, social, and psychological implications of their use. The specialist areas covered will be of particular benefit to forensic scientists as well as lawyers and law enforcement personnel. The book will also be an invaluabe source of reference to craniofacial surgeons, coroners (medical examiners), archaeologists, and students from a wide range of medical, legal, and scientific disciplines.
