Probable evidence of scurvy in subadults from archeological sites in Peru.
Anatomical evidence of scurvy offers the potential of providing new and important evidence of diet in archeological human populations because of the existence of many biomedical references indicating that bone changes do occur in some cases and, because of this, should be observable in human burials.

Estimation and Evidence in Forensic Anthropology: Age‐at‐Death
Abstract:  A great deal has previously been written about the use of skeletal morphological changes in estimating ages‐at‐death. This article looks in particular at the pubic symphysis, as it was
Analysis of Age‐at‐Death Estimation Through the Use of Pubic Symphyseal Data *
Abstract:  The question of whether age parameters derived from an American population will reliably estimate age‐at‐death for East European skeletal populations is important since the ability to
A new method for estimating age-at-death from the first rib.
Age-at-death estimates generated from 50 and 95% posterior density regions indicate that this method captures age-related change reaching the ninth decade and produces results highly correlated with age in other samples and its applicability to females.
Sexual Dimorphism in America: Geometric Morphometric Analysis of the Craniofacial Region *
The consistency between American groups is interesting as it suggests that population differences in sexual dimorphism may result more from human variation in size than allometric variation in craniofacial morphology.
Inter‐Observer Variation in Methodologies Involving the Pubic Symphysis, Sternal Ribs, and Teeth *
Investigating how consistently multiple investigators assign skeletal traits to rib, pubic symphyseal, or tooth “phases” and measure teeth finds the problem lies in the qualitative nature of broad descriptive phase categories, which contain multiple skeletal features and traits that are open to interpretation.
Three-dimensional (3-D) imaging in post-mortem examinations: elucidation and identification of cranial and facial fractures in victims of homicide utilizing 3-D computerized imaging reconstruction
3-D reconstructions of the skull performed as part of forensic postmortem examination in a recent victim of homicide are described.
Variation as Evidence: Introduction to a Symposium on International Human Identification
In the on-going genocide trial of The Prosecutor v. Popovi_ c et al. (IT-05-88-PT) (1), demographic evidence about the population structure of victims has again been challenged. How the Trial Chamber
