    So they were discovered in 1980 but could have been archived years, possibly decades, before that? I'm kind of confused by the circumstances. What's your take on it?
    Also, if the epiphyseal fusion is incomplete on femur - does that mean she wasn't done growing? I recall hearing about that in Bio, but that was eons ago.

    I'm guessing an insider would know if the yellow colored tag meant anything special. (Or it could mean the tag was yellowed from age as some fabric yellows over time.)

    My ex grew up in Portland (he was born in 1962)....according to him the hard partying 1960s scenes that made San Francisco, CA famous were happening in Portland too. These remains might be from a transient, or possibly of Native American origin.
    L'chaim!

    Yes Alleykins, I believe that the presence of an epiphyseal growth plate rather than a completed line on long bones means that she wasn't finished growing and was likely on the younger end of the age estimate (under 18-20, when the average person's growth is matured from adolescent to adult structures). I also think that what happened here was that this was likely a case of previously misplaced/lost archived remains that were eventually rediscovered who knows how much time later after they were initially found and stored with the ME.

    bbm for focus
    That's what I'm leaning toward, that the discovery date wasn't when the remains were initially discovered, but found in archives, which means they could be somewhat older. Could they have been used for training purposes maybe?
