This book examines every bone in the human body from its earliest embryological stage through to maturity and is profusely illustrated with superb bone drawings at every stage of development. The ability to identify every component of the developing skeleton is of core relevance not only to the forensic profession but also to clinicians, skeletal biologists and physical anthropologists.

Book Description:

This book examines every bone in the human body from its earliest embryological stage through to maturity and is profusely illustrated with superb bone drawings at every stage of development.

From the Back Cover:

The correct identification of the skeletal components of the juvenile skeleton is critical to the analysis of human remains. Without such information, it is impossible to establish the number of individuals represented or to ascertain their age at death. This book is an abridged version of the award-winning Developmental Juvenile Osteology which, immediately upon publication, was acknowledged as an indispensable reference resource. This new text brings together information from the widely dispersed anthropological and medical literature. Students of physical anthropology, archaeology and forensic science will find this text invaluable to their studies. It should also prove relevant to any scientists involved in the study of human skeletal biology as well as appealing to a much wider clinical readership.

The introductory chapters deal with the provenance, source and analysis of juvenile skeletal remains and the development of bone as a tissue. The main body of the book describes each bone from its earliest embryological stage to its final mature form and is profusely illustrated with superb detailed drawings. Each section closes with 'Practical Notes' which summarizes previous information, and describes how to side and distinguish a bone from others of a similar morphology.

The book is specifically designed to be used both in the laboratory and in the field. It offers easy reference to extensive practical information on the juvenile skeleton in a concise and manageable format.

The authors are experienced anatomists and forensic anthropologists who have worked with UK police forces and the UN in war crimes investigations. In addition to medical teaching, they have undertaken many specialized workshops in juvenile osteology. They have also been involved in television documentaries, radio interviews, and newspaper articles.
