Hassan's Story
Unit 5. Case Study 1. Hassan’s Story
Hassan’s Story Answers A- I

A. The two major types of surface markings that bone do have are the depression and openings. These include fissure, foramen, fossa, sulcus, meatus, process, condyle, facet head, crest, epicondyle, line, spineous process, trochanter, tubercle, and the tuberosity. B. Liu and Hassan were surprised to find metopic suture on an adult skull because right after birth the left side and right side of the birth bone are united by the metopic suture. They also were surprised, because this suture should have disappeared between the ages of six to eight years of age. Finally because they are only founded in 5 to 10% of people. C. The skeletal structures that are found inside the nasal cavity that might be missing from a excavated skull would be the perpendicular plate, middle and inferior nasal concha and the vomer. D. Hassan and his team would be able to tell the ages of the skeletal remains of the woman and the baby by the four main sutures such as coronal suture, sagittal suture, lambdoid suture, and the squamous sutures. E. The features that the larger skeletal in the sarcophagus would show to indicate it was a female is the vertebral column of a female is about 61cm (24in.) and a male vertebral column of a male is about 71cm (28in.). F. The bone of the neck region that could be affected or damage by strangulation or neck trauma other than the cervical vertebrae is the hyoid bone. G. If the bones of a person found at the excavation site were mixed and out of order the anthropologists would be able to determine which was cervical, lumbar, or thoracic, because the cervical vertebrae include interlocking vertebrae bodies with saddle shaped superior and inferior surfaces alongside the canal is triangular and of a similar size to the vertebral body, and the spinous process are shorter then in thoracic and not as massive as the lumbar vertebrae process. The thoracic vertebrae

    C. What delicate skeletal structures are found inside the nasal cavity that might be missing from an excavated skull? There are several bones that are within the nasal cavity – sphenoid bone, nasal bone, palatine bones, lacrimal bones, vomer and the perpendicular plate of ethmoid bone. The lacrimal bones are the smallest bones of the face which would make this bone easy to deteriorate due to its size alone. The perpendicular plate of the ethmoid bone that also connects to the vomer bone are only attached to other bones that are perpendicular no lateral connection to bones.…

    The body that has been taken for analysis from the Chinese burial ground is an adult male. He is an adult because his femur is 50cm long which is around the average height and the epiphyseal discs are completely ossified so he is not going to grow anymore. He is a male because his pelvis is narrow and the pelvic outlet is small. This man was in good shape because the deltoid tuberosity, tibial tuberosity, and linea aspera are very distinct and well developed and his bone density is heavy which means he exercised a good amount. The circular hole in the temporal bone with edges that are smooth and well healed may indicate that this man may have had some sort of surgery to release pressure inside the skull.…

    The inferior wall (floor) is formed mainly by the maxilla and partly by the zygomatic and palatine bones. The thin inferior wall is shared by the orbit superiorly and the maxillary sinus inferiorly. It slants inferiorly from the apex to the inferior orbital margin. The inferior wall is demarcated from the lateral wall by the inferior orbital fissure.…
