One thought on “Severe osteometric probing of skeletal remains: John Byrd

  1. John Byrd was visiting our seminar (Phil 6334) yesterday and gave us a very informal presentation (off-the-cuff) of a statistical analysis he developed for identifying human remains using bone fragments. It’s faster and cheaper than DNA, and apparently as (?) reliable. I’d never even heard of osteons before this, and had no clue he was using severity. I plan to study this further, and would be glad to have feedback.
