    Abstract

    [Truncated abstract] The role of a forensic anthropologist in medico-legal investigations is to, ultimately contribute toward establishing the identity of unknown skeletal remains by constructing a biological profile; which involves estimations of sex, ages, stature and ancestry. recent research relating ti the formulation of sex estimation standards has focussed on the morphological assessment of bones other than the oelvis and cranium, such as the long bones of the appendicular skeleton.
