The bioanthropology text and lab manual Standards for Data Collection from Human Skeletal Remains (RS44), edited by Jane Buikstra and Douglas Ubelaker, was developed from a seminar at The Field Museum of Natural History. Published in 1994, it is the result of an effort by bioanthropologists and bioarcheologists to agree upon basic methods for recording data from skeletal remains. The enduring value of this spiral-bound volume is attested by its steady sales over 25+ years, reflecting widespread adoption as a college text and lab manual in the United States and Canada.
Standards contains summaries of methods and techniques for handling and recording all human osteological material, including dentition, with recommended essential measurements for remains of both adult and immature individuals. Nonmetric skeletal traits, pathologies, cultural modifications, and indications of diet and other behavioral characteristics are covered, among other topics. In addition to a glossary and extensive bibliography there are tables, over 120 figures (both line drawings and photographs), and 58 pages of recording forms that can be reproduced for use in analysis.
