Consensus Body: Anthropology

This standard provides requirements for documenting, describing, interpreting, and reporting skeletal trauma in forensic anthropology. It also provides requirements for the determination of trauma timing (i.e., antemortem, perimortem, or postmortem) and the identification of the mechanism that produced the trauma (i.e., projectile, sharp, blunt, or thermal trauma). This document does not address cause and manner of death.
