The purpose of this guide is to familiarize the user with the science of fractography and how it can be used to examine and interpret skeletal fractures. Moreover, this guide will acquaint readers with the tools and equipment needed to effectively apply fractography to bone. Most of all, this guide aims to demonstrate that with a bit of background information, a few basic tools, and a little practice, fractography can be used to enhance the anthropologist’s understanding of trauma events and thereby improve the quality of their forensic products.
