Human Variation: Osteology & Forensics

There are several skeletal markers for bipedalism - areas or parts on the skeleton that indicate that walking on two legs was possible for that skeleton. Describe two of these markers. Be sure to include where are the markers located, what they do, and how they indicate bipedalism. 

Do these two skeletal markers for bipedalism describe any identity characteristic about the human body? Do they describe "race," sex, or age of the person? Do they describe any behavioral characteristic (handedness, walking pattern or gait, movement patterns, athletic ability)? 

How real or accurate are the skeletal markers in telling a story about people's identities or behaviors? Can we rely upon this information to identify people? Why or why not? There is more info to help our conversation here.
