To prosecute charges of genocide and crimes against humanity, one fact that must be established absolutely: are the bodies those of ordinary people, rather than combatants? Forensic anthropologists must answer this question by proving precisely who the victims were and how they were killed. In 1996, Clea Koff, a 23-year-old graduate student was sent to Rwanda by the U.N. to work with a small team exhuming victims of the genocide. The Bone Woman is a mesmerizing account of her four years of gruelling investigations into these, and other, murderous events - what she found in the Rwandan hills and in Srebrenica; how it affected her; and who went to trial based on evidence she collected - events which transformed her from an idealistic student to a war crimes veteran.
