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.
