Radiouhlíkové datování kosterních pozůstatků v běžné soudně lékařské praxi
The article below presents a case of skeletal remains found in 2014 in the Czech Republic. The most important tasks during the examination were to determine not only the cause of death, but also how old the remains were. For the purposes of the analysis, anthropometric and morphometric methods were used. These methods did not enable us to determine the exact time of death, though the accompanying findings suggested that the remains came probably from World War II. To determine it, radiocarbon dating was also applied, which helped us to exclude clearly any possibility that the skeletal remains might be younger than 20 years and thus be subject to a criminal investigation.
