Forensic anthropology is the
examination of skeletal remains.
• This examination can be used to first determine
if the remains are in fact human.
• Then the forensic anthropologist can determine
the gender, approximate age, physical stature, and
likely racial affiliation of the person in life.
• The examination can also yield approximate time
since death, likely cause of death and any
identifying illnesses or wounds suffered in life that
could leave traces in the bone structure.
• This information can then be used to help
identify the remains.
