Written in Bone

This exhibit "examines history through 17th-century bone biographies, including those of colonists teetering on the edge of survival at Jamestown, Virginia, and those living in the wealthy and well-established settlement of St. Mary's City, Maryland." Features include a comic based on an actual forensic case, a series of forensic case files, and illustrated essays on bones, forensic anthropology, and Colonial life. From the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
