Okay, so the body farm isn’t coming to the library, but Tiffany B. Saul from the University of Tennessee Forensic Anthropology Center is!
UT’s Forensic Anthropology Center is internationally known for its Anthropology Research Facility, commonly known as the Body Farm. The first of it’s kind in the world, this outdoor research facility has allowed forensic anthropologists to conduct research and training alongside law enforcement for over 30 years. In addition to the systematic study of human decomposition, this program has established one of the largest human skeletal collections for research in the world. Join us as Tiffany B. Saul provides a behind the scenes look at the fascinating research and training conducted at the Body Farm.
This presentation does include some photos of human decomposition and discussion of skeletal trauma that may be disturbing for some audience members. The content is considered to be for a mature audience.
