    Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


    The age of death of juvenile skeletal remains can be estimated by assessing the
    time of skeletal maturation. Although a great deal of attention has been
    devoted to the time of maturation of postcranial bones from dry samples, the
    sternum has received less attention, especially in individuals younger than 14
    years of age.1,2,3 The aim of the following study is to document the time
    estimation of maturation of the body sternebrae, clavicular and intercostal
    notches on dry bones from a Portuguese identified skeletal collection
