Abstract

As a forensic anthropologist my job, career and reputation literally depend on knowing the human skeleton inside out. But my work requires more than simply being able to distinguish human from nonhuman remains, or a fragment of a radius from an ulna, to consistently and accurately estimating a person’s age at death, ancestry, sex, stature, identity, trauma and disease by examining their bones and teeth. Becoming a skilled physical anthropologist, therefore, requires years of education, training, and experience studying known-identity skeletons, as well as documented examples of disease and trauma. The foundation for much of this training rests on the availability and accessibility of large and diverse human skeletal collections from around the world.
