April 2018 Newsletter


AAPA Conference
Rhesus Macaque • Bonobo • Siamang • Indri Lemur
NEW: Large Dog Forelimb




April - We once again look forward to seeing those of you who will be attending the American Association of Physical Anthropologists (AAPA) annual meeting, including members of the Paleopatholgy Association (PPA), the Human Biology Association (HBA), the Paleoanthropology Society (PAS), the American Association for Anthropological Genetics (AAAG), and the Dental Anthropology Association (DAA).

The field of anthropology has grown. The multiple specializations within the broader context of anthropology that are present at this conference highlight their interdependant nature.

We have created an entirely new category (Bioarchaeology), reflecting both overlap and specialization of these disciplines, as well as their adjacent archaeological and biological fields, and have begun highlighting individual subcategories in our newsletters.

•  Osteoarchaeology  •  Paleopathology  •  Zooarchaeology  •
•  Marine Archaeology  •  Dental Anthropology  •

This month, we are featuring four primates inspired by the AAPA graphic above right. In addition to any of our complete skeletons, articulated or disarticulated, we also offer individual bones, joints and limbs.

As we continue to expand our product line, we are struck by interconnectedness of species, and the expanding fields of inquiry that study them - ranging from wide angle overviews (ecosystems, human/animal interdependencies) to highly focused specializations (pathological conditions found in ancient human and animal remains, the dentition of human and non-human primates, past and present).




Dental Anthropology


Paleopathology is the study of disease and trauma of both once-living human and non-human remains in the archaeological record. Abnormal conditions found on bone are a chance to explore biomedical issues of a given population and expands our knowledge of the effects of disease on skeletal tissue. The information gathered can give insight into intragroup and intergroup interactions, physical activity, physiological stress, and prevalence of particular diseases.


Dental Anthropology

Dental Anthropology is a subfield of Biological Anthropology that uses the dentition of human and non-human primates to explore, and hopefully gain knowledge on how populations are related, and how diet and other environmental factors affected them. The Turner-Scott Dental Anthropology System dental plaques are a series of 24 reference plaques that highlight human tooth morphology and variation and are at the center of this category.


We are always happy to introduce new specimens. We now offer the forelimb from our new large dog skeleton, molded from the skeleton of a bullmastiff. The study of limbs can yield information about an animal's lifestyle, and the environment in which it lives.
