A classic in its field, Human Osteology has been used by students and professionals for nearly two decades. Now revised and updated for a third edition, the book continues to build on its foundation of detailed photographs and practical real-world application of science. New information, expanded coverage of existing chapters, and additional supportive photographs keep this book current and valuable for both classroom and field work.
Osteologists, archaeologists, anatomists, forensic scientists, and paleontologists will all find practical information on accurately identifying, recovering, and analysing and reporting on human skeletal remains and on making correct deductions from those remains.

This book is great. Informative and clear cut.
The reason for the 4 stars is that the copy I received had matte pages rather than the more durable glossy format.
