This investigation re-examines some of the human skeletal remains from Crow Creek, which contained the mutilated remains of hundreds of victims of a massacre. In this study, the human skeletal remains from the Bone Bed and the Village contexts at this site are compared. Through careful, detailed osteological analysis, this research demonstrates the extent to which the perpetrators deliberately processed the victims. This would have taken some time, which suggests the perpetrators did not leave immediately after the attack.

Keywords:   Massacre, Osteological analysis, Crow Creek, Bone Bed
