Abstract

Forensic Anthropology is the application of the science of physical or biological anthropology to the legal process. The contribution of this field to the death investigation system in Sri Lanka has a long history. However, for the death investigation system to get the benefit of global advances in this field, it needs to be developed into a subspecialty. This can only be achieved through development of human resources, infrastructure and by establishing population-specific references.
