When: Thu., Oct. 25, 6-7:30 p.m. 2018
Phone: 804-648-5015
Price: $25.
A century and a half after the end of the Civil War, the bones of Confederate and Union soldiers are still being found. This presentation will demonstrate how a forensic investigative process contributes to American military history. Over the past three decades, Smithsonian forensic anthropologists have examined the skeletons of several hundred soldiers. Unmarked military burials have been disturbed by construction projects, exposed by natural processes such as erosion or animal burrowing, and found by relic hunters using metal detectors. Featuring D. Owsley, division head for physical anthropology at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History.
