Based on a historical forensic crime, this innovative set merges physical anthropology (osteology & skeletal interpretation) and archaeology for a captivating interdisciplinary approach to exploring forensic anthropology. Based on the assassination of the "Last Czar of Russia" and his family (the Romanovs), this curriculum appeals to student imagination and intellect while crossing subject boundaries into world history/social studies. This scenario-based learning lab lends awareness to a multitude of anthropology-related careers, not typically recognized by students.
