About Strange Remains

“Death has no power to freeze my heart, jangle my nerves or sway my reason. Death to me is no terror of the night but a daylit companion, a familiar condition, a process obedient to scientific laws and answerable to scientific inquiry. For me, every day is Halloween.

William R Maples and Michael Browning, Dead Men Do Tell Tales: The Strange and Fascinating Cases of a Forensic Anthropologist

For forensic anthropologists, death and decomposition are not something to fear but an everyday experience during schooling and careers.  I witnessed some gruesome cases and studied some macabre history during my studies in forensic anthropology-those experiences inspired me to start this website.

Strange Remains features articles on significant forensic anthropology cases and archaeological excavations, morbid history, gruesome burial traditions, skeletal collections and charnel houses, macabre art work, and human remains in the news.

I am a guest blogger for Atlas ObscuraDefrosting Cold Cases, and Forensic Magazine.  If you have any questions or would like contact me for guest blogging, I can be reached at dolly.stolze@gmail.com.

I can also be followed on Twitter (@StrangeRemains) and Tumblr (http://strangeremains.tumblr.com).

  1. Dolly just wanted to share with you how much I enjoy your blog and look forward to all the things you post.I am a artist that loves to work with bones, horns, and antlers and I find some many wonderful things here!

  2. Dolly I nominated your blog for a Liebster Award… I understand that you may not want to get involved with it. I still think you have one of coolest small blogs and have added a link to your blog from mine. If you are interested just hopp over to my blog and see the details. Again thanks for the great read Jolynn

    • Thank you for the nomination, that’s so sweet! I’ll definitely get involved. Please let me know if there’s anything on my end I should do. I’m really touched!! Having a rough day so this really helps! 🙂

    • I reread the details. It looks like it’s for blogs with less than 200 followers, and unfortunately/fortunately I have more than that. Thank you again for the nomination!! Keep up the good work with your blog! I love reading it!

  3. Thanks for the bones! Great aesthetic feeling.
