Forensic anthropologists are anthropologists who analyze skeletal remains in order to discover information which can include cause of death, sex, age, and ethnicity.
Forensic anthropologists are also referred to as forensic archaeologists.
They are trained to help in investigations involving crimes, missing persons, and natural disasters.
Forensic anthropologists are trained to use a variety of different tools in collecting and analyzing skeletal remains.
With these methods, forensic anthropologists can determine the sex, age, and ethnicity of a person.
Once the remains have been analyzed, the forensic anthropologist will write a report for the investigator.
