Bones: Ancient Men and Modern Myths focuses on bone structures and characteristics, including bone modifications, breakage, processing, and destruction by animals. The publication first elaborates on the transitions to relics to artifacts and monuments to assemblages and middle-range research and the role of actualistic studies, including artifact and assemblage phase and relic and monument phase. The text then takes a look at the patterns of bone modifications produced by nonhuman agents and human modes of bone modification. Discussions focus on breakage related to other forms of bone processing, morphology of bone breakage, chopping and bone breakage as butchering techniques, butchering marks, bone breakage and destruction by animals, tooth marks, and previous approaches to understanding the significance of broken and modified bone. The manuscript ponders on patterns of association stemming from the behavior of man versus that of beast, as well as control collections of animal-structured assemblages; information on kill behavior and comparisons; observations of wolves and their behavior; and studies of assemblage composition caused by beasts. The publication is a valuable source of information for researchers interested in bone structure and modifications.

The Gospel comes to us in an inexhaustible variety of ways: in reading Scripture and praying together, in thinking hard and arguing in faithful community, in the Holy Spirit and in flesh and bone. These sermons engage heart and mind, all of the senses (including our senses of humor and tragedy), and the real lives of real congregations, to proclaim a thoughtful, embodied vision of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

In this fascinating account of the search for the remains of the world's first pope, none other than Peter, the chief apostle of Jesus, Thomas J. Craughwell takes us on one of the most exciting archaeological finds of the twentieth century. In 1448 a team of architects and engineers brought Pope Nicholas V unhappy news: the 1,100-year-old Basilica of St. Peter suffered from so many structural defects that it was beyond repair. The only solution was to pull down the old church--one of the most venerable churches in all of Christiandom--and erect a new basilica on the site. Incredibly, one of the tombs the builders paved over was the resting place of St. Peter. Then in 1939, while reconstructing the grottoes below St. Peter's Basilica, a workman's shovel struck not dirt or rock but open air. After inspecting what could be seen through the hole they'd made in the mausoleum's roof, Pope Pius XII secretly authorized a full-scale excavation. What lay beneath? The answer and the adventure await. In this riveting history, facts, traditions, and faith collide to reveal the investigation, betrayals, and mystery behind St. Peter's burial place.

Dr Porntip Rojanasunan is Thailand’s most famous forensic scientist who is instantly recognisable by her punk-rock hairstyle and fashionable style. Nicknamed ‘Dr Death’ by the mass media, her findings often contradicted those of the Thai police, leading to numerous clashes between the two. She gained international attention for her work on identifying victims of the 2004 tsunami and has since raised public awareness of forensic science in Thailand. In her second book, Dr Porntip delves into some of her most well-known cases, including the grisly murder of medical student Jenjira Ployangunsri, the mysterious disappearance of Thai-Muslim human rights activist Khun Somchai Neelapajit, and the death of Malaysian political aide Teoh Beng Hock. She also discusses the role of forensic science in stabilising the violent insurgency in southern Thailand and reflects on the milestones in her life. Brutally honest, Dr Porntip never flinches from the gruesome possibilities as she unearths the truth despite obstacles at every turn

Even in paradise, people do die. And it's the job of Mimi Charles, Forensic Anthropologist, to analyze the bodies that aren't found right away - skeletons, mostly. Mimi and her colleagues at the Medical Examiner's office are a tightly-knit team that relishes solving the mysteries presented by their cases. But outside of the office, their lives in the sweet little town of Hilo, Hawaii, flow in a gentle island rhythm. None of them is prepared for the disappearance of one of their own, right from the building where they work (or the parking lot outside, anyway). Soon a series of notes begins to arrive, supposedly from the missing person. Even though the FBI shows up to join the local police in the search for clues, Mimi and her friends can't resist doing a little "digging" of their own. Suddenly, there's a very pesky TV reproter calling Mimi at home and peeking out at her from behind potted plants. And then John, the Death Investigator who works with Mimi, behins to act strangely. Despite the distractions, Mimi begins to piece together odd, seemingly unrelated bits of information in the race to find her missing friend, and she most sincerely hopes that she's not too late....
