Abstract

If exhumations to retrieve a body or body samples are conducted according to archaeological methodology, they may provide evidence on events which occurred during the interment process. This article discusses the exhumation methodology employed during exhumations in a tropical environment and provides a case study to serve as an example of the data that can be obtained beyond the simple recovery of human remains.
