The analysis of teeth is a standard in archaeological excavations. For
example, did any of you see the analysis of teeth of the Roman
aristocratic woman who was buried in London in about the 2nd century
A.D? Her teeth analysis showed that she had been born in the
mediterranean region.
The same evidence has been used in Mexican and South American
archaeology to study the origins of Aztec and Mayan rulers.
When the remains of the Confederate soldiers were brought up from
the Huntley, teeth analysis was used, as well as DNA, to determine the
background and origin of the various volunteers who had died in the Huntley.
