Keywords: skeletal, aging, human remains Introduction and background Identification of human remains almost always involves assessment of the age at death of the individual.
While aging phenomena occur in non-bony tissues, it was for a long time osseous tissue and teeth that were at the core of most methods.
The new method is based on the fact that over the past 60 years, environmental levels of radiocarbon have been significantly perturbed by mid-20th-century episodes of above-ground nuclear weapons testing.
Before the nuclear age, the amount of radiocarbon in the environment varied little in the span of a century.
Crystallins are microscopic proteins that bind together and collect on the lens of the eye.
Forensic anthropologists at The University of Arizona took advantage of this fact in a recent study funded by NIJ.

They started under the name Anthropophogy and would later change it to Skeletal Remains.
This review covers the basic and most often used gross morphological methods, radiologically-based methods, biochemical methods, and radiocarbon dating.
