Adolescent/Adult? 15+ yrs old/possibly adult Usually gracile, but of adult size without specific skeletal indicators of age preserved
Adult 20+ yrs old Clearly adult based on epiphyseal fusion or dental development but elements used to determine more specific adult age range not present
Adult? Probable adult Based on robustness & size, probably not a subadult
Code Term Definition
Fetus/Neonate Late term fetus or newborn
Subadult Anywhere from infant to adolescent Clearly juvenile but too little information present to narrow age category
Unidentifiable unknown age Remains too incomplete to even put in broad age categories
