dc.description.abstractAn excavation of Wedron Mounds in Wedron, IL conducted in the 1972 revealed burial mounds containing highly fragmented and incomplete skeletal material from a Native American population dating back to the Late Woodland period. A cursory examination of the material during the original excavation tentatively identified what was found and the sex of the ten individuals. This study re-examines the material and identifies the age, sex, and stature of each of the individuals. Several metric and non-metric techniques, as developed by osteologists and forensic anthropologists, are used in the determination of the three unknowns. The data collected here can be used as the foundation for a database of information for this understudied group of people.en_US
