Bone Appetit: 5 ingredients that add Forensic Flavor to your Fiction
Taught by forensic pedagogue Professor Ron Armstrong “BONE APPÉTIT” is the only hands-on workshop that will have you working with anatomical specimens (real and replica) as you unravel the mysteries of the dead in this 2-hour, hands on immersive workshop.
Pulling from his 20 year career as a forensic educator Professor Ron will be excerpting from his upcoming release “THE BIG BOOK OF BONES: FORENSIC APPLICATIONS OF SKELETAL ANALYSIS” which will introduce you to the intricacies of working with skeletal materials and aid you in unearthing their secrets!
This hands-on, highly participatory workshop will help you bone up on the following topics:
- Health and safety when working with osteological materials of the unknown kind
- The basics of vertebrate anatomy (at least enough to tell Tony Roma from Black Angus)
- Discerning the differences between human and animal remains
- Estimating age, sex, ancestry, and stature from skeletal elements
- The art and science of forensic description when referencing skeletal traits
Learn proper bone handling techniques and how to speak with “forensic fluency” with turns of phrase that are just technical enough to whet the appetite yet won’t leave your readers running to the dictionary to decipher every line! This seminar is perfect for aspiring and working writers as well as avid readers, novelists, screenwriters, producers, directors, lawyers… anyone who wants to learn how real forensics is carried out in the field and the laboratory.
