If you have not yet read “Bones Don’t Lie,” a great blog on osteology, archaeology, and anthropology, it’s a must! Even those with the most lay knowledge will gain a greater appreciation of mortuary analysis.

The particular article looks at the burial practices of those living in Plymouth during the tragic winter of 1620-1621. Check it out: “Pilgrim Burials from the First Winter.”
