This paper discusses the subdiscplines of anthropology, then goes on to teach the reader about how an anthropologist would learn about and from bones. Starting with the context in which a bone is found, it discusses the information that can be learned by where and within what a bone is found at a dig site. It then discusses determining whether a bone found is human, how a bone may be classified into a reference population, and how that reference population yields information about the individual who the bone belonged to. Then specific examples are provided as to how a specific bone can provide information about the diet, sex, age, stature, or ancestral history of an individual.
