Bioanthropological Research in a Museum Context: How to Manage Misidentified Human Skeleton Collections?
This fictional case study describes the museological context in which bioanthropologists might find themselves. It highlights the ethical challenges in the management of human skeletal collections where identification is possible, based on extant written records that were “lost” but have been “recovered”.
