Dental Anthropology

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Sep 28, 1996 - Social Science - 389 pages
Teeth are among the best sources of evidence for both identification purposes and studies of demography, biological relationships, and health in ancient human communities. The anthropologist's specimen may be a cast that a dentist has taken from a living mouth, or actual teeth from an archaeological site or forensic case. This text introduces the complex biology of teeth and provides a practical guide to all essential aspects of dental anthropology, including excavation, identification, microscopic study, and tooth age determination. Dental Anthropology is a concise yet comprehensive resource designed for students and researchers in anthropology and archaeology.

At least currently, this book is Dental Anthropology by Simon Hillson. You only need to look at the cover to see that this is not the The Cambridge Companion to English Literature, 1500-1600. The subjects are too different. Please change it, it can be confusing.
