“I took your class the fall of 2007. My coworker, Tamara, took your class a couple of years ago. I just wanted to thank you. We put what we learned in your class to work yesterday and uncovered our first clandestine grave! The notes we took in your class helped us prepare for and complete the excavation. Your class was fun but putting into practice what we learned was even better! Thank you!”

“I had a great time at this class a few years ago:  very educational, interesting, and fun all at the same time. Also, I made a drive down to Nogales, MX to boot!”

I had the good fortune to attend this class just this past November, 2014. It was exceptionally well done, and you could not ask for better presentations. While the mechanics of the excavation are fairly straightforward, Dr. Fulginiti and her staff show exactly why you have to remove layers of the earth bit by tiny bit, about 1/64 of an inch at a time.

I came away from the class comfortable that if I were ever presented with one of these situations, I could handle it well enough that I could competently present my findings to a jury.

Word to the wise…
Buy or bring good kneepads, everything else you could possibly need will be provided to you, you can write later and thank me…:-)

As a side note, the class I went to was conducted south of Phoenix in Casa Grande. After the class, I headed north and stayed in the Cottonwood/Prescott/Prescott Valley area for several days before flying home. If you have never been to northern Arizona, this is a wonderful opportunity. I am seriously considering moving there and if I did, it would be somewhere in that beautiful area.
