Reconstruction of life from the skeleton
Here is a fascinating profile of recent research activities in skeletal anthropology and paleodemography that also documents the progress achieved within the century. This complete sourcebook not only shows what has already been accomplished, but also points the way for future research. A detailed text, Reconstruction of Life from the Skeleton describes the techniques scientists currently use to reconstruct life patterns and individual identification from human skeletal remains and explains how to determine the ``way'' people lived, rather than merely list the history and evolution of population groups.
