For those of you who might read Dr. Bellantoni's book and others in archaeology that pertain to skeletal anatomy, we offer a companion set of diagrams identifying the names of skeletal elements and their placement in human anatomy. It's hoped this will assist FOSA members and the interested public in better understanding the terms used in the book.
