Bones are important for many life functions such as support, mobility, protection, production of blood cells, endocrine regulation, and many others. Condition of bones can tell much about victim's life and that is why they are the source of informations like gender, age, height and face features. Teeth are also good material for identification of the victims whose bodies are found in poor conditions because of enamel, the hardest substance in the human body that protects teeth even at high temperatures. This work presents a brief overview of the most important characteristics of bones and teeth that forensics can use in identification process and it also includes information about identification process of victims of Croatian war of Independence.
