Forensic archaeology and anthropology have a long history in the Americas, but in the UK we have only recently reached maturity with a professional body and regulatory system. I will describe the growth of these two linked disciplines and explain what we do, a little of how we do it, and what it feels like to be a practitioner interrogating the ultimate Silent Witness.
