presentation by Dr. Lorna Pierce,

5:00 – 6:00 pm.
Dr. Pierce will present
“The Body in the Woods.”
Dr. Pierce is an adjunct lecturer at both San Jose State University and Santa Clara University where she teaches Introduction to Forensic Anthropology. She is the Consultant in Forensic Anthropology at the Santa Clara Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office and regularly consults with other law enforcement organizations in the identification of skeletal material. Dr. Pierce will explore how forensic anthropologists really identify skeletonized human remains, as well as discuss whether these processes are accurately depicted on television shows and in the print media. Essentially, Dr. Pierce will take you from the discovery of human remains through the many steps toward a positive identification.
