Who Were They? The Basics: Sex, Age and Paleodemography

No anthropological analysis carried out on bones and teeth, whether simple or complex and based on advanced investigatory techniques, can neglect two fundamental items of data: the sex and the age at death of the individual under examination. At the same time, no reconstruction, if it is to have demographic significance, can fail to consider as a whole the demographic profile of the set of skeletal remains under scrutiny. For this reason, a large part of skeletal research, from its very beginnings, has been dedicated to the problem of how to arrive at best estimates of sex and age at death, and how to construct a coherent demographic picture out of the data on individuals.
