For human remains that are likely to be repatriated or otherwise made unavailable for future research, an exhaustive and thorough data collection protocol (standardization of minimal amounts of information that should be recorded) was developed, reviewed, and tested by specialists. Procedures include inventory, sexing and aging, dental collection and study, measurement, nometric traits, postmortem changes, paleopathology, cultural modifications, and conservation of samples.
