Remains recovered from BA05, for example, came primarily from three different municipalities in Kosovo. Analysis of the spatial relationships between all remains within BA05 would produce a list that contains possible matches of body parts originating from different municipalities. By narrowing the search to the separate deposits within the grave, particularly complex graves such as secondary burials, the accuracy of the list produced by the spatial analysis program should increase. 18 H.

Coding in this manner will notify both a surveyor who is later making a map, and mortuary personnel that what is present is a fractured and possibly incomplete skull. The code MAND is used for a disarticulated, unassociated Mandible. If only a portion of the mandible is recovered, a left/right designation can be added. As noted, one problem with the ICTY codes found during the spatial analysis of BA05 is that incomplete or disarticulated limb ends are not clearly defined. With the ICTY codes, the humeral head of a complete disarticulated left arm would be recorded as a left shoulder (LSHO).
