    The introduction to the second edition (1972) of Digging Up Bones stated that “Bones are commonly an embarrassment to archaeologists” Digging Up Bones was written to alleviate the embarrassment or problem caused by bones when found by the archaeologist. It is written for a nonspecialist in the analysis of human skeletal material. Moreover, it seems to have been written primarily for the archaeologist working at sites in Britain. It was intended to give a” basic knowledge of the human skeleton “which” is quite within the reach of those without anatomical training, whether adult archaeologists or schoolboy amateur.” The author has always achieved this stated objective admirably.
