I thought this was a really interest book about bones and anthropology. I'm glad it covered the ethics of this area of science and study and the problematic way in which some remains have been dealt with. The one thing that really bugged me was when the author was talking about the lack of bodies for anatomists to study in the UK he referred to English medical schools and then gave Burke and Hare as an example of people willing to murder to provide cadavers. Burke and Hare were murdering people in Edinburgh, Scotland for Dr Knox at the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh, Scotland. England and Scotland are not interchangeable. Sigh.
