Abstract

Archeologists and anthropologists have expertise in the search, location, recovery, and recording of buried or hidden physical evidence, including human remains both from single as well as mass clandestine graves. Human remains may be located either by chance or, in the case of suspected buried remains, a proactive investigation. This chapter reviews and considers the advantages and limitations of the different techniques employed by forensic archeology practitioners to search for and locate and recover buried evidence.
