Our teams project, aims to increase efficiency, organisation and speed, while minimize unnecessary physical contact and chance of error or loss, during the exhumation, transport, research, analysis and long term storage of human skeletal remains. Three containers were specially designed and constructed with carefully selected materials to abide all guidelines regarding the preservation and conservation of organic material such as bone, which will allow Osteoarchaeologists and Anthropologists globally to accommodate all 206 bones of the human skeleton in six trays, with each tray able to hold a group of the whole, splitting them to their left and right counterparts. This organisation system will cut costs, save valuable laboratory space and increase the speed of identifications in International Humanitarian Organisations, Missing Persons Programs, Museums and Universities.
