Abstract

Ever wonder what happens to a body when it is left to decay without the preserving effects of embalming fluid? In this seminar we will explore the effect on a body when natural burial, clandestine burial, or no burial occurs with a special emphasis on the stages of decomposition, putrefaction, adipocere formation, bog bodies, and natural “dry” mummification; their mechanisms and the environments in which they predominantly occur. Viewer beware, contains graphic content.
