Abstract

The coroner's jurisdiction is reviewed, giving the foundation for his involvement with human remains found in the archaeological context. The laws in Alaska relating to prehistoric or archaeological resources, desecration of graves, and disinterment are discussed, and suggestions are made for protocol in handling human remains in various circumstances.
