The Texas State Anthropology Center (FACTS) in San Marcos, Texas is offering a special one-day workshop for our members called “Identifying Human from Non-Human Bone.” This is a hands-on workshop designed to educate law enforcement, medicolegal death investigators, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates on the differences between human and non-human bone morphology. Participants will examine gross and microscopic differences between human and non-human bone. Basic knowledge of skeletal anatomy is required. Handouts will be provided.
