About this book

Taphonomy is the study of animal remains after death, including fossilisation. Much of our knowledge of fossil mammals comes from accumulations of bones in caves, probably by owls or small carnivores. This book reviews the data from one such assemblage in Somerset, and compares it with other assemblages from around the world.
