Due to a continuous process of dismantling within the university system, the number of freelance anthropologists has increased. In 2011 a group of experienced anthropologists founded the “Workgroup Freelance Osteoanthropologists (AFOA)”. Its members developed a codex and guidelines in order to ensure a high quality for serious anthropological work. Furthermore workshops take place to discuss methods and current issues. Short reports given in this article present a small selection of projects conducted by some members of the AFOA.
