Scope note: Estudio científico del esqueleto humano, ceñido al exclusivo propósito de identificación. Incluye el establecimiento de la identidad individual, el análisis de traumatismos, la reconstrucción facial, la sobreimpresión fotográfica, la determinación del intervalo entre la muerte y el momento del estudio, y la reconstrucción de la escena del crimen. Los antropólogos forenses no certifican la causa de la muerte, pero proporcionan datos que ayudan a establecer la probable causa. Se trata de una rama de la antropología física, y la American Board of Forensic Anthropology es la encargada de expedir los certificados de expertos cualificados.
