    Abstract

    Dating material is a difficult problem in legal medicine, no matter what substance is being tested. Concerning bone remains, the classic works of Orfila and Lazaretti [1] showed the difficulty of establishing the time since death. Since then, little research has been done in this field; mistakes can be made in dating bone material.
