    Abstract

    The major genetic population, or race, of most skeletal remains can be determined by an experienced forensic physical anthropologist if the skull is relatively intact [1,2]. However, if the skull is missing or seriously damaged, the determination of race is much more difficult or impossible. Even if the skull is intact, racial determination may be a problem if the individual was of mixed genetic origin [3].
