Never have I ever....

Ever wonder how the field has developed into the procedures and protocols you use in today's cases. Have you work on a case that has changed the way you approach a scene or conduct your analysis. Or have you made a mistake when working in the field that has had implications on the investigation? The BAHID Winter Conference will focus on new developments within the fields associated with human identification, alongside presentations from speakers sharing their own experiences of changes to the way investigations are carried out following major or minor incidents. For those who would like to confess all when it comes to their own personal mistakes, there will be the opportunity to face the audience and tell all, or anonymously leave the details on our graffiti wall. As with previous conferences there will be a workshop in the afternoon and we invite proposals for this slot.   

Call for Papers Closed - Draft programme available here

The Association

The primary aim of the Association is to encourage productive interchange between various disciplines in human identification, promote the academic integration of individual subjects and through the medium of a collective body, pursue standards of excellence and innovative developments. We provide a forum for discussion and promotion of subjects within the domain of human identification.

The membership includes (but is not limited) to professionals in the fields of forensic anthropology, forensic odontology, forensic archaeology, facial anthropology, forensic podiatry, forensic pathology, DVI, forensic computing and digital forensics. Members come from academia, law enforcement, private business, institutional and legal backgrounds.

Although this is a British Association there are members outside the UK from elsewhere in Europe, the US and Australia, and membership throughout the world is encouraged.

Membership of the Association costs just £57 for a full membership or £31 for a student membership; more details and an application form can be found here.


BAHID also hosts the website for the British Association for Forensic Anthropology (BAFA). If you are interested in finding out more about BAFA or would like to join, then please follow the instructions when completing your BAHID application for this membership or email
