Nearly 50 years ago, the Body Farm began with one body, a small plot of land, and a novel idea.

Today, the University of Tennessee Anthropological Research Facility consists of a 2.5-acre wooded plot and instead of just one body, approximately forty bodies are studied at the same time in different scenarios.

Founded by anthropologist William M. Bass, the Anthropological Research Facility is the world’s largest Body Farm, aimed to better understanding the process of decomposition, mainly to assist in criminal investigations.

Originally appearing in True Crime Magazine’s Behind the Tape Photobook, this uncensored photo gallery offers an exclusive access into the world’s most fascinating research facility!
