From BBC Future:
Britain’s real-life bone collectors are a small band of human anatomy specialists who have set up a bespoke “bones service” for police use – one believed to be the first of its kind in the world. It allows the police to send in pictures of bones that might be dug up during building work, or found outdoors by members of the public. Evidence of murder or a missing person? A quick email to the bones service might be all that’s needed to check.
