The skeleton of human changes with increasing age due to change in bone density. Bone tissues have the capability to store the information of these variations which can be used to predict age from human remains. This study discuss the process and factors that affect human skeleton with increasing age. The techniques to carry out human age estimation are discussed as well, which shows that there is a strong co-relation between increasing age and bone micro structures. Microscopic analysis of osteons, haversian canal and circumferential lamella were analyzed in these techniques to estimate age.
