In this elegantly written book Henderson has re-imagined the medieval bestiary, retaining the speculation and tangents, but with a modern scientific underpinning. He is a courteous and engaging guide to obscure topics, drawing on science, philosophy and literature. The clever layout and illustrations complement his writing wonderfully - it really is a beautiful object. I have not finished it yet and have no intention of doing so anytime soon - this is a book to savour and digest slowly. - Sion

Uncovering human remains is one of the most exciting moments for many archaeologists. Simon Mays' book, a revised edition of his earlier work, offers up-to-date scientific explanations to interpret such skeletal evidence. All aspects of the subject are covered from the comparative anatomy of early and modern man and the biological composition of bone and teeth, to identifying and working with cremated bone. May also explores the connection between the dead and the living, arguing that an understanding of this relationship is essential for better interpretation of human remains.

Other chapters cover methods for determining age and sex, identifying diseases of bones and teeth, recognising trauma, and recovering and analysing DNA. The subject matter is presented in an easily accessible style, with references to accumulated research data retrieved from past excavations – such as at the Medieval village of Wharram Percy – and with a bibliography for further study.

This is both essential reading for students intending to pursue a career in osteoarchaeology, and a fascinating guide for anyone interested in understanding excavated human remains.

Once upon a time in the west
15/04/2014

While Westerns remain popular in America, they have largely fallen out of favour with British readers. This is a great pity, suggests Joshua from our Waterloo branch, as they are missing out on some wonderful fiction, both classic and contemporary.
