9780471793724: Biological Anthropology of the Human Skeleton

"This book is virtually required reading for biological anthropologists and will be a useful, up-to-date primer on osteological analyses for a wider audience."
The Quarterly Review of Biology, March 2009

"... a comprehensive guide to the ever-changing discipline of physical anthropology... provides an in depth introduction to human skeletal biology. The structure of the book makes it easy for the reader to follow the progression of the field of human skeletal biology."
PaleoAnthropology, 2009 Issue

The First Edition of Biological Anthropology of the Human Skeleton is the market-leading reference and textbook on the scientific analysis of human skeletal remains recovered from archaeological sites. Now, featuring scores of new or thoroughly revised content, this Second Edition provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the topic available.

Like the previous edition, this Second Edition is organized into five parts with contributing chapters written by experts in the field of human skeletal biology: Part One covers theory and application; Part Two discusses morphological analyses of bone, teeth, and age changes; Part Three reviews prehistoric health and disease; Part Four examines chemical and genetic analysis of hard tissues; and Part Five closes with coverage of quantitative methods and population studies. Each chapter includes a review of recent studies, descriptions of analytical techniques and underlying assumptions, theory, methodological advances, and speculation about future research.

New or thoroughly revised content includes:

  • Techniques in the analysis of human skeletal and dental remains

  • Extensive coverage of new technologies, including modern morphometric techniques

  • Advances in the field of forensic anthropology

  • Enhanced discussion of ethical terms regarding the study of aboriginal peoples' remains where those people are no longer the dominant culture

This book serves as an indispensable research guide to biological anthropologists, osteologists, paleoanthropologists, and archaeologists. Now with a stronger focus on teaching complex material to students, this revised edition provides enhanced case studies and discussions for future directions, making it an invaluable textbook for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in biological anthropology and forensic anthropology programs.

From the Back Cover:

Advance praise for the Second Edition:

"The substantial widening of the coverage and the inclusion of issues that have received increased or revitalized research interest since publication of the First Edition will provide unrivalled comprehensiveness."
Holger Schutkowski, PhD, University of Bradford, UK

"I enthusiastically recommend the publication of this Second Edition. It is already an excellent volume and [will] no doubt find its way into many upper-division courses."
Patricia Lambert, PhD, Utah State University
