As a part of my current learning process pre-MSc, I’ll be searching out new sites to add to the blog roll below. Ideally the blog roll will be a source of information on various aspects of human osteology and archaeology. I will continue to add sites as and when I find them. Also there are a number of organisations included in the list, such as the Institute For Archaeologists (IFA), British Association for Biological Anthropology and Osteoarchaeology (BABAO), & the Council for British Archaeology (CBA), which provide key calling points for interested parties. These associations are designed to help promote and educate the public, as well as other archaeological companies, by providing information on current theories & finds, and helping to pool resources of specialists. They also provide ethical and legal frameworks in the exciting world of archaeology!
As a result of a little late night website searching regarding the carpals (the wrist bones), I stumbled upon this site. A series of radiographic images are presented daily and discussed regarding radiological technique and pathology present. Thus the site presents a database for students studying radiology.
The highlight for those of us interested in human osteology is the chance to see the individual skeletal elements in full articulation with related anatomical elements.
The next post will deal with the basic skeletal nomenclature, and the directional terms in anatomy!
