Born in the city of Nanping of southeast China's Fujian Province, Song Ci (1186-1249), whose courtesy name is Huifu, self-titled Zimu, was an ancient forensic scientist. As a third-degree scholar of his time, Song was appointed judge of prisons four times. Accumulating a number of first-hand data in forensic examination and summarizing forensic knowledge of Song and previous dynasties, he authored Records for Washing away Wrong Cases. As the world's earliest forensic monograph, the book guided judicial practice in Song and following dynasties. Published 350 years earlier than similar books in western countries, it became a classic in international forensic history. Thus, Song has been recognized as founder of world forensic science.
