The practice of forensic anthropology requires intimate knowledge of the human skeleton including various anatomical planes of reference, the features of skeletal tissue at various structural levels, the names of bones and teeth and locations of certain features, and the ability to differentiate between left and right bones (for paired bones). This chapter provides an overview of human osteology and odontology including anatomical terminology, histology, and functions of the skeletal system. Bones and selected features are presented including those of the cranium, axial skeleton, and appendicular skeleton.
