Skeletal Data Recording Forms

The following contains the 1992 data recording forms used by the University of Hawai‘i-Manoa in establishing the Ban Chiang skeletal database. These forms can be downloaded in either Microsoft Word or Corel WordPerfect formats. It is hoped that providing these forms will facilitate the use of standardized formats for bioarchaeological data collection in Southeast Asia.
