Lotus Reads asked about Written in Bones. This book looks at archaeological sites all over the world and from various periods of time and specifically at human remains. From Neanderthal remains to those of Medieval times, from Peru to Egypt, scientists examine the skeletons, mummies, and bog bodies, and their respective burial sites. Each chapter takes a site and relates what has been discovered about the cause of death, sex, size, diet, nutrition, general health, and burial practices. Each example gives a surrounding narrative about the general time period and culture, and then specifics about the remains. Fascinating.
Jill asked about my latest Amazon order. So here are the titles: The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O'Connor, Candide by Voltaire, The Silent Tower by Barbara Hambly, The Shape-Changer's Daughter by Sharon Shinn, and Godmother Night by Rachel Pollack. The last 3 are for Carl's Fantasy/Fairy Tale Challenge in March. It is a mixed bag, eh? I thought I'd ordered The Boleyn Inheritance, but don't find it listed. Well, that will wait.
