In bioarchaeology, there have been a number of ethical issues surrounding the excavation and analysis of human remains (Fforde, 2004; Sayer, 2010; Fossheim, 2012; Lohman and Goodnow, 2006), and more recently they have focused on aspects of documentation, dissemination, curation, and repatriation (Buikstra and Gordon, 1981; Larsen and Walker, 2005; Giesen, 2013; Taylor, 2014; Lambert, 2016). These issues and added challenges have also been extended to forensic anthropology (Blau, 2016a,b). These ongoing discussions in physical anthropology include both academic and museum settings, incorporating the way bodies are captured and displayed. This chapter discusses the ongoing ethical discussions within bioarchaeology, highlighting key considerations.
