During the 1980s and 1990s, forensic anthropology began addressing some of the more pressing issues related to modernizing the determination of a biological profile of the recently deceased: reevaluation of chronological age markers, including the pubic symphysis (Brooks and Suchey 1990; Suchey et al. 1986), cranial sutures (Meindl and Lovejoy 1985), auricular surface (Lovejoy et al. indd 9 2/10/2012 1:44:45 PM 10 DENNIS C. DIRKMAAT AND LUIS L. CABO ends (İşcan and Loth 1986, 1989); reconsidering assessing ancestry in modern individuals (Gill and Rhine 1990); stature estimation (Ousley 1995); and trauma (Maples 1986; Merbs 1989), to name but a few important studies.

CABO “the forensic anthropologist cannot discuss the cause and manner of death”? And they even want to look at the weapon too, as if you did not have tool-mark analysts for that. Some modern physical anthropologists equally may be troubled by the view of the field presented in this book. Wasn’t forensic anthropology supposed to be just a direct application of physical anthropology techniques and, hence, once you knew your human osteology and general physical anthropology, you were ready to take on forensic cases?
T. Dale Stewart, Thomas McKern, Ellis Kerley, and Charles Warren did the same during the Korean War (McKern and Stewart 1957; Klepinger 2006) and the Vietnam War (Stewart 1970; Ubelaker 2001). This eventually led to the formation of the US federal government’s Central Identification Laboratory in Hawaii (CILHI) and Thailand (in the early and mid-1970s), renamed the Joint POW/MAI Accounting Command (JPAC) in 2003. Kerley (1978) suggests that it was this work for the US Armed Forces in the 1950s that legitimatized forensic anthropology as a scientific discipline.
