Dr. Anna Williams discusses forensic anthropology and using decomposition to determine cause and time of death. Forensic anthropologists study taphonomy, the study of decay and decomposition, and are interested in bones and teeth, not soft tissue. In the UK, studies cannot use donated human cadavers, so they use pigs because of their physiological similarity to humans.
