Tested it, confirmed that corpses DO rot into bones and skull if you wait long enough. My fort was in year 11 when it finally happened for the first time, and that was a rather small animal corpse (though not entirely sure in which year it died), so it takes a LONG time. --Syndic 14:40, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

With version 0.31.16, goblin corpses, that appeared after autumn siege, turned to bones by spring! That's less than a year. I use an underground one-tile 10 z level deep pit to throw disarmed goblins to. Ivze 25 October 2010 (UTC)
Severed limbs seem more likely to decay into usable bones, but whole skeletons tend to be useless. --Quietust 20:23, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
