The two major surface markings are: 1.) Depressions and openings. They allow the passage of soft tissues, and 2.) Processes, these are projections or outgrowths that either help form joints or serve as attachment points for connective tissue.

B. Why are Liu and Hassan surprised to find a metopic suture on an adult skull? In which skull bone do the metopic sutures occur?

Because the Metopic suture usually disappears between the ages of six and eight. The Metopic suture occurs in the frontal bone.

C. What delicate skeletal structures are found inside the nasal cavity that might be missing from an excavated skull?

The Ethmoidal sinuses, Superior Nasal Concha, and the Middle Nasal Concha also know has cartilage are found inside the nasal cavity that might be missing from an excavated skull.

D. How would Hassan and his team be able I tell the ages of the skeletal remain of the woman and the baby?
X-ray and examination of the four sutures known as the Coronal Suture, the Sagittal Suture, The Lambdoid Suture, and the Squamous Suture is how Hassan and his team would be able to tell the age of the skeletal remain of the woman and the baby.

E. What features of the vertebral column would the larger skeleton in the sarcophagus show to indicate it was female?

The length of the vertebral column would only be 61 in. long. Also by the sacrum, it is shorter and wider in females to accommodate childbirth.

F. What bone in the neck region other than the cervical vertebrae may be damaged during strangulation or neck trauma?

The Hyoid bone is the other bone in the neck region that may be damaged during strangulation.

G. If the bone of a person found at the excavation site were mixed up and out of sequence, how could the anthropologists determine which vertebrae were

    Liu and Hassan were surprised to find a metopic suture on the skull due to the estimated age of the adult skull. The metopic suture should have been closed well before the man reached his teens and should have been completely closed by the age of 6 or 8. The metopic suture occurs in the frontal bone of the skull. In an adult skull this suture is known as the coronal suture.…

    Furthermore, due to the nature of the case and the extensive heat alteration that occurred to the bones, recognition of the bones as human or non-human became hard to discern. However, by employing certain osteological methods anthropologist could characterize the highly fragmented remains. One such method frequently utilized by the forensic team was determining the maturity and architecture of the bones, as well as the analysis of the cranium, which is very distinct from any non-human (Byers, 2011). Similarly, the presence of projecting saber like teeth,…

    In the article by R.U.Steinberg, paragraph 2 tells us that the first step that forensic anthropologists take after finding the bones, is examine it and find out if it's human. Then they ask if it's an individual or more. After knoork on the biological profile of the victim which includes age, height, gender, and race. Paragraph 2 in the article says that race can be determined with antemartem pathology. After knowing the biological prifile, they establish positive identification. Dental records, hospital X-rays and DNA could be used in this method. "After that we top it off with perimotem [ time of death] pathology." Says R.U.Steinberg. This is done in order to coclude if a murder has occured. In order to find out the time of death, they look at the details of the bones and if they have any sratches or marks in them.…
