Taphonomy, from the Greek, taphos, meaning tomb or grave, and nomy, meaning classification, is a field of paleontology, paleo-anthropology, and bioarcheology that studies human and animal remains in relation to the post-mortem (after death) transformations that occur in burial sites.

In a broader sense, taphonomy is the study of the processes that leads to fossilization, as well as. Taphonomy is the name given to the process of preservation of a plant or animal as a fossil. It actually consists of three main processes: necrosis, which refers to the changes which occur at or shortly after death, such as rigor mortis; biostratinomy, which covers the course of events from the time after death to burial in sediment (or.
