It can be stated rather confidently that forensic anthropology was born and took its first and more important steps in the United States of America; maybe not necessarily as a concept, but at least as an actual professional field, with a cohesive, constant, and independent body of practitioners, rather than as an additional task for other professionals, such as forensic pathologists. Forensic anthropology, though often presented as a relatively young discipline given its formal configuration and recognition in the 1970s, has a rich history in the USA, spanning most of the twentieth century.

We have also included interesting discussions of human cremated remains research and video superimposition efforts in producing personal identifications. Part VI presents the topic of interpreting events surrounding the death and what occurs after the deposition of the body known as forensic taphonomy. Methodologies and practices in the collection and interpretation of field contextual information, as well as the laboratory analysis of the bones and their modifications are discussed. Part VII highlights the history and current configuration of the roles and duties of forensic anthropologists in nonacademic settings.
