It is the starting point of the discipline, the foundation
upon which the following research work is built on.
It consists of the recompilation, analysis, and development
of information, whichever its origin is:
- Literary sources, for example published books and
articles as well as information directly related to the
case that has not been published but is of free access
(reports, medical reports, trials and sentences, etc.)
- Existing audio archives and video records. We can also
create our own data base which allows us to obtain
first or second hand information.
- Cartography and remote sensing, as tools to obtain data
about the soil where the human remains underlie, and,
this way, be able to discover the changes it has experienced
over the years whether these changes are due to anthropic
or natural causes.
The main objective is to create an informative substratum which
allows us to obtain data that will facilitate the location of
that which we are searching for, be it a necropolis, common
graves or individual graves.
