About this book

This book will present the most advanced research on forensic archaeology presented during the annual European meetings in the last 3 years. Thanks to the broad nature of the chapters presented, this book will show not only different approaches and different crime scenes around Europe, but also how every single European law enforcement has faced forensic investigations.

This book shows forensic archaeology as practiced in this legal context, emerging and solidifying in many European countries, differing in some respects because of differences in legal systems but ultimately sharing common grounds. Differently from similar books, this will be not only a collection of research and case studies in which forensic practitioners demonstrate the extent and complexity of the various aspects of forensic archaeology, but also it will show the necessity of co-operation as a condition for any work in forensic archaeology among scientists of different disciplines and law enforcers.

About the authors

PIER MATTEO BARONE: Pier Matteo Barone is an adjunct professor at the American University of Rome teaching courses on archaeological methodology, geophysical techniques (GPR, in particular) and forensic archaeology, as well as courses on the archaeology and heritage of Rome and the eastern Mediterranean. 
His research is centered on different remote sensing applications to better understand the archaeological landscape. He is also a recognized expert in forensic archaeology employed to testify in criminal and civil cases. He was a co-investigator in a three-year research project (FIRB 2012) with the geological institute of CNR (IGAG) investigating marble quarries of the Greco-Roman world in Turkey.
Finally, he has authored over a hundred of publications on these topics, he has presented several papers in national and international conferences, he has appeared on national public/private radio, TV, and magazines, and he is co-editor and reviewer of several international peer-reviewed journals.

WJ MIKE GROEN: Mike Groen is a forensic archaeologist employed by the Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI) and a staff member at the Leiden University, Faculty of Archaeology. His past academic and professional experience relates to GIS modelling, field archaeology, human taphonomy and physical anthropology. He is responsible for the introduction of forensic archaeology in the Netherlands in 2005 and for the creation of the Forensic Archaeology group within the European Network of Forensic Science Institutes (ENFSI) in 2013. Since 2014 he chairs the Dutch Association of Physical Anthropologists (NVFA). His current research interest include forensic archaeology, GIS predictive modelling forensic taphonomy and scene of crime science.
