  • Distinguishing Marks/Features: Pits on the ventral surface of the pubic bones suggests that she may have undergone childbirth. An anthropological exam revealed that the female had sustained injuries to the left side of her head and nose earlier in life which likely caused her to have a deviated septum. Several congenital defects were also seen in her spine but it is unknown whether they would have caused her any physical discomfort. She may not have been aware of the defects.
  • Dentals: Available. Severe, anterior open bite malocclusion (this type typically due to thumb sucking as a child). No existing dental restorations. Teeth #1, 16, 17, 32 impacted. Teeth were in very poor condition and some of the untreated teeth were likely causing her pain.
