Fracture Examination Workshop
(from 2 hours to 2 days)
After an introductory lecture about patterns and the examination process, the participants and instructor will break, tear, or cut a variety of objects that could be found at crime scenes and then reassemble pieces of those objects. Then, the participants will examine pieces of objects that the instructor had previously broken, torn, or cut. The comparative scientist participants will study the features of the separated pieces to ascertain whether they had once been connected to and part of each other. Thus, participants will develop a better understanding of making judgments regarding whether items had ever formed a continuous object.
