MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a beautiful book published by Museum of London Archaeology. It provides a unique glimpse at a large number of pathological lesions present in populations spanning over two thousand years from a single geographic location...The first impression made when opening this volume is that the photographs and radiographs illustrating the text, and in particular the lesions described therein, are stunningly clear...With its detailed, yet concise, descriptions of both common and rare pathological conditions, and with over four hundred figures, this book will surely become an invaluable reference guide for bioarchaeologists and palaeopathologists. -- Keith Kirby The Archaeological Journal
