"The Bioarchaeology of Metabolic Bone Disease" provides a comprehensive and invaluable source of information on this important group of diseases. It is an essential guide for those engaged in either basic recording or in-depth research on human remains from archaeological sites. The range of potential tools for investigating metabolic diseases of bone are far greater than for many other conditions, and building on clinical investigations, this book will consider gross, surface features visible using microscopic examination, histological and radiological features of bone, that can be used to help investigate metabolic bone diseases. It features clear photographs and line drawings illustrate gross, histological and radiological features associated with each of the conditions. It covers a range of issues pertinent to the study of metabolic bone disease in archaeological skeletal material, including the problems that frequent co-existence of these conditions in individuals living in the past raises, the preservation of human bone and the impact this has on the ability to suggest a diagnosis of a condition. It includes a range of conditions that can lead to osteopenia and osteoporosis, including previous investigations of these conditions in archaeological bone.

"[Bioarchaeology of Metabolic Bone Disease] takes us along a fascinating exploratory journey of the main (and not so common) metabolic bone diseases identifiable in skeletal remains. Useful supporting tables, and clear photographic images and line drawings, supplement the text, with a concluding chapter providing a view of future research..." Professor Charlotte A. Roberts Department of Archaeology Durham University "The authors' cogent discussion of how elements within a given lifestyle, including diet/nutrition, cultural practices, socio-economic status, and the surrounding environment, can significantly impact the health of individuals and of societies is illustrated with abundant well-chosen anthropological examples. This volume will be of great value to all scholars devoted to accurate, informative reconstructions of past human life."
