    The editors of this volume state that their purpose is “to present the state of the art of elucidating biological characteristics from skeletal remains” (p. xv) and “to offer to our colleagues … a clear profile of current research activities in skeletal anthropology” (p. 8). They do this by assembling 17 authors writing on 15 topics of interest to biological anthropologists and others. This book is an outgrowth of a 1986 seminar of the same title presented at the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association. While some of the authors are not necessarily among “the most respected members of the profession” (p. xv), most of them have been publishing or presenting papers on their respective topics for some time, so their participation in this volume comes as no surprise
