About this book

This manual is a collection of illustrations of the bones of 31 different land mammals. This was done as a reference guide for zooarchaeology students but will be indispensable for anyone desiring to identify bones from these mammals. This manual does not have step-by-step instructions on how to articulate animal skeletons.

Biography

A thirty-year veteran of bone-building, Lee Post's interest in building skeletons started when The Pratt Museum in the Alaskan town of Homer acquired a 17-foot beaked whale that the staff had collected and cleaned. This led to fifteen years of building up the osteology collection at the museum by salvaging, preparing, and often articulating animal skeletons.

In the mid-'90s, came a three-year high school/museum collaborative project in which Post worked with high school students on first articulating a 41-foot Sperm Whale skeleton they had collected and cleaned, then half a dozen other skeletons. Since that project, his focus has been working mostly with schools and students and creating written manuals that can help others who might want to do similar projects.
