“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.
