This project seeks to add to the profile of a currently unidentified individual and demonstrate techniques for assessing the sex and age of human remains. An inventory of the remains was conducted, accounting for skeletal condition and presence or absence of bones. Using previously accepted standard methods, the sex and the age will be assessed using metric characteristics: sternal length and long bone circumference, and non-metric characteristics: morphology of the sciatic notch and preauricular sulcus. A previous study of these remains used epiphyseal unions to narrow the age range to between 20 to 25 years (Lewis 2012).
