Written primarily for physical anthropologists and archaeologists, "Investigations of Ancient Human Tissue" defines many of the theoretical and methodological problems now facing trace element and stable isotopy researchers. In suggesting new and ambitious goals for research, its nine essays advocate a return to the fundamentals of ancient bone chemistry. The chapter on the applications of elemental analysis to human hair, as opposed to the usual material, bone, is one prominent feature.
