This article discusses efforts to use data about racial differences in dentition to identify the racial characteristics of skeletal remains found in Bali, Indonesia. The occlusal patterns in the remains are examined to determine whether they indicate Mongoloid or Australoid racial identity. While there are aspects of this specimen that do not conform to the dentition patterns observed in either race, the researcher concludes that they are closer to Mongoloid patterns.
