This book is wonderful. A must for anyone studying archaeological osteology, archaeology, forensic archaeology, etc. it is written very well and is very readable, with plenty of image examples and descriptive diagrams. It is also not very heavy, being paperback and not too thick, good for carrying around.
Overall, excellent, essential reading for anyone studying the scientific side of archaeology.

A great book, nicely written and easy to read. This book covers all topics I needed for a module on my MSc course and was easy enough to read on the tube. I definitely recommend this to anyone studying archaeological skeletons. The background into pathological mechanisms and bone metabolism can seem daunting at first, but this book explains them clearly and explains why they are important to understand
