It has been fairly quiet here on this site as of late, but rest assured I will starting posting more frequently soon. In other interactive news there is a new Reddit sub forum entitled ‘Bioarchaeology‘, where news and information for various bone and archaeological topics can be discussed, together with relevant links to interesting articles and news. I was alerted to this site from a generous reader of this blog, and I look forward to adding my own information to the Reddit site. It is worth a look, and heavily encouraged to comment or post news yourself. It is the perfect place to ask any burning questions interested or intrigued readers have about bodies and bones!
My current favourite Reddit link is this article on bodily decomposition, by Arpad A. Vass. It caught my attention as it succinctly describes the various conditions (such as autolysis and the stages of putrefaction) that lead to the decay of flesh and bone of a human body after death.
As ever, if you are an interested reader of this blog then please feel free to ask any questions on any of the posts in either the comments section or via email correspondence (see About the Author tab).
