Humans are hard-wired to be curious and forensic investiations are a professional expression of that natural instinct. Forensic science studies the physical remnants of criminal activities--that is, evidence--and works to reconstruct those past events. In this way, forensic science can be thought of as a kind of "recent archaeology" or "nano-history," using evidence of things not seen to better understand the crime and its environment. Drawing on two decades of experience in forensic science, the author clarifies what fornesic science is (fascinating) and what it is not (television), explains the science behind the sleuthing, and offers real case examples to demonstrate how this science helps convict the guilty, exonerate the innocent, and lead investigations down the correct path.
