BAFA Meeting

The BAFA Workshop and Meeting will take place on 24th November 2019. The theme will be:

'Survey Techniques for the Forensic Anthropologist'

Considering the growing need for forensic anthropologists to understand contexts and mapping of human remains and associated evidence, the workshop this year is focused on survey techniques. The speakers will deliver talks on how to recognise the different types of contexts and different survey methods. Both a theoretical and a practical approach of traditional methods (such as gridding and off-set) and digital methods (such as photogrammetry) will be presented. The practical session will involve groups to record a scene using a variety of recording techniques outlined in the presentations. This is an opportunity to learn/refresh skills in traditional surveying methods and more ‘modern day’ approaches.

Workshop Hosts: Samantha De Simone and Samuel Rennie
