Question for Forensic Anthropologists!
February 5, 2014 12:46 PM Subscribe
I'm curious to learn about human decomposition rates and wanted know: how long would it take for a human child's skeleton vs. a human adult's skeleton to dissolve in acid peaty soil? What about in soil us humans interact with everyday? (i.e. public park soil, garden soil)
Thank you! Also, if anyone knows the answer, if you could please explain to me where/how you got the information :)
