Abstract

Various methods have been developed to determine the best practices for estimation of human skeletal remains. While the os coxa has been proven to be the most reliable, each set of bones contain certain traits that vary from male to female. Our study will identify the sex of an individual using nonmetric methods associated with the os coxa, humerus, and the skull.
