About this book

In this groundbreaking new series, the authors use clearly defined terminology and descriptive protocols that are applied uniformly throughout. Organized alphabetically by site name with detailed morphological descriptions and original, expertly taken photographs, each entry includes previous systematic assessments of the fossils and geological, archaeological, and faunal contexts.

The work entailed in developing such a series is phenomenal and the authors must be congratulated for producing such a thorough and comprehensive volume. (International Journal of Osteoarchaeology, 4th July 2005) "As a unique compendium of information, the series is a necessary resource for laboratory or departmental libraries." (American Journal of Physical Anthropology, June 2004)
