A team of researchers, including a UT graduate student, have found a new way to estimate the age of a skeleton using the pubis, a pair of bones forming two sides of the pelvis.

Forensic Magazine featured Cristina Figueroa-Soto, a doctoral student in anthropology, and the other scientists in this story. The team has developed a more precise analysis based on advanced 3-D imaging of the shape of the pubis and a growing database of samples.
