An impressive formulative study involving osteometric measurements from multiple examiners across international boundaries. Impressive work and forward thinking regarding ‘shape’ and dimensional accuracy of forensic examiners estimating the age of human remains and other skeletal features.

Anthros independently are leading the way much in the manner suggested by Obama’s Council on Science and Technology’s much maligned ( by law enforcement ) suggestions on scientific methods for forensics. Ironically, this study was funded by the US  DOJ (one of the PCAST deniers).
