Human Osteology Fall 2002 PROJECT # 1: Craniometrics / Sex and Ancestry Estimation Goal : The goal of this project is to give you some hands on experience evaluating morphological variation and measuring crania for the purposes of estimating sex and ancestry. Morphology can be assessed visually and quantified through craniometrics. Both of these approaches can be extremely valuable in forensic anthropology, paleoanthropology, skeletal biology, and human variation. This project will give you experience doing some of the standard assessments and measurements. Instructions : There are 5 crania available for this project. You will need to visually assess and collect measurements for use with FORDISC 2.0 from two (2) of the crania (any 2 different crania will do). Assessments of visual indicators are to be written in the areas provided – you will find helpful information for evaluating these features in the White and Bass texts.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
