Bone Search and Discovery Course – available again

Short post!

I have found a way to make the Introduction to Bone Search & Discovery Short Course available again.

(Yeah, my Christmas break was productive 😀 )

This is a basic, entry-level introduction for civilians, physical anthropology students, and new law enforcement members. This course focuses on the context of outdoor surficially-dispersed remains: what to look for, how to look for it, and where to look. It is my hope that this online course will be accessible enough to assist searchers everywhere in their efforts.

What is included:

  • What bones look like in a surficial outdoor context
  • Why bones in a surficial outdoor context may scatter / disperse
  • Tips to help searchers discover more remains and items of potential forensic evidence in surficial outdoor settings
  • A definition of context and why it’s important
  • Two videos (approx. 1 hour in total) and one workbook

You can find more information on the course here or on my website,, under the Anthropology or Consultation tabs.

If you have any questions about the course, reach out. I’m happy to answer to the best of my knowledge.
