Evidence is the means by which the court is informed of the facts on dispute between the parties, as set out in their pleadings. Upon that evidence, the court decides the issues of fact. The four main types of evidence available to prove the facts in issue are documentary evidence; evidence of witnesses of fact; evidence of expert witnesses; and real evidence. Documentary evidence is produced in almost every civil action. The public documents such as birth, marriage, or death certificates.
The investigating officer can start searching for evidences in any manner he feels suit the crime scene. Importance Of Searching These are some of the basic methods used globally by the forensic experts and the investigating officers to search for evidences at crime scenes. The search for evidences is of extreme importance when it comes to solving a case because they provide as major support to the case.

For if you will go to the Vatican or to the Ostian way, you will find the trophies of those who laid the foundations of this church” (“Church History Book II”). This further shows that the “trophy” discovered at the Necropolis marks the grave of Saint Peter. Aside from the “trophy of Gaius” marking the tomb as Saint Peter’s, the Necropolis features the “graffiti wall.” The “graffiti wall” offers a perspective on the pilgrimage associated with the burial site of Saint Peter.

The forensic autopsy should be complete (including the head, chest, abdomen and other parts of the body as indicated). HOW AN AUTOPSY IS PERFOMED The extent of an autopsy can vary from the examination of a single organ such as the heart or brain, to a very extensive examination. Examination of the chest, abdomen, and brain is probably considered by most pathologists as the standard scope of the autopsy. The autopsy begins with a complete external examination.

Forensic anthropology is the branch of anthropology which deals with the recovery of remains as well as the identification of skeletal remains which involve detail knowledge of osteology (skeletal anatomy and biology). In other words, forensic anthropology is the application of anthropological knowledge and techniques in the identification of human remains in medico-legal and humanitarian context. Forensic anthropology includes the identification of skeletal, decomposed or unidentified human remains. Forensic anthropology may also help determine the age, sex, stature and unique features of deceased from their remains. Personal identification is one of the main aspects of medico-legal and criminal investigations.
This is relevant in how historians pen history, through the usage of interpretations of records. As Hutcheon states, the historical facts are a product of the interpretations of archival records and meanings that are given to them and how different perspectives will glean different meanings from the same events (2002, p. 54). This is further supported by Thompson as he explains that historians construct an account of historical representations that would be relatively convincing out of the records that are fragmented (2004, p. 29; Hutcheon 2002, p. 55; Evans 2002, p.2). It is the role of a teller—in this case, a historian—to give a particular meaning through gleaning a truth through the facts, as those facts are not able to present themselves in either form of narratives (Hutcheon 2002, p. 56). With interpretations and piecing together historical evidences to form meaning, this suggests that there is a certain sort of fictionalisation that goes into the method of how history is created and the ease of its readability raises the issue that historians would write history in a causal and linear fashion, almost so that it would read like a narrative with the implications that one thing would lead to another (Currie 1998, p. 79).

Written in Bone is a work describing the past lives of Maryland and Jamestown colonists through forensic analysis. The past is truly written in the bones of people long ago.

Yet Bernard expected that Pedro and others would soon arrive in Lisbon to rid Muslim factions from the peninsula. Forey, notes that
