About this book

Because behavioral reconstructions have become increasingly common, especially within paleopathology, the book aims to review the scientific basis for such an approach. For example, osteological scenarios seeking to link the onset of skeletal conditions with specific behaviours in past populations, are critically examined.


Contents

Of science and stories; osteoarthritis - clinical and osteological approaches; osteoarthritis and activity - occupational and sports studies; osteoarthritis - anthropological interpretations; enthesophaties and other osteological indicators of activity; trauma; studies of bone geometry - the shape of things to come?; defining the limits of interpretation.
