Anthropometry is the science that defines physical measures of a person's size, form, and functional capacities. Forensic science (often shortened to forensics) is the practical application of science to matters of the law. In criminal law, forensics science can help prove the guilt or innocence of the defendant. In civil actions, forensics can help resolve a broad spectrum of legal issues through the identification, analysis and evaluation of physical evidence. This program will discuss how new innovations and discoveries in forensic technology have important scientific applications beyond law.


3 Stars, Video Librarian. This addition to the Show Me Science Advanced series looks at the fundamentals of forensic science. Citing popular TV shows and advancements in crime scene investigations, The Science of Forensics delves into the history of forensics, which dates back as far as 500 B.C. to fingerprinting by the ancient Chinese, and it includes the first autopsy after the death of Julius Caesar, Henry Goddard's 1835 Scotland Yard bullet comparison, chemist James Marsh's arsenic testing, and Nobel Prize-winning biologist Karl Landsteiner's categorization of blood types.
