Abstract
 
Description
"An anthropological analysis of activity-induced skeletal pathology in the Sadlermuit Eskimo population. The author analyzes osteoarthritis and osteophytosis, compression fractures, spondylolysis, and tooth loss. He discusses the importance of identifying these features on the skeleton to interpret activities of past populations. The focus is on the upper extremities and the vertebral column with minimal mention of the lower limbs." -- WorldCat.
