This presentation will use case examples to describe the range and value of forensic anthropology to human identification from the skeleton, particularly when DNA evidence cannot be recovered or is of no value in the absence of a candidate with which to make a comparison — such as a reference sample from a ‘missing person’ — in the hope of making a match.

In addition to the assessment of the routine biographic parameters — age, sex, ancestry, stature — the presentation will review odontological evidence, evidence of trauma and surgical intervention, and evidence of disease.

Insights into the of method of disposal of a body and the use of forensic facial approximation will also be introduced.
