This publieation summarizes an preliminary unpublished file (1971) on diagnostie eriteria in dry bones. The suitable learn used to be made in 22 medieal museums in Europe, England and Seotland among 1966 and 1969. approximately 670 dry bones have been reeorded by means of over 2000 images. Emphasis is plaeed on ehanges for whieh diagnostie eriteria are proposed instead of on these for whieh diagnostie difficulties stay. The ehanges studied have been maeroseopieal now not mieroseopieal. this isn't areport at the pathological ehanges in dry bones in medieal museums, yet a press release on "Diagnostic eriteria of syphilis in dry bones" and of eertain different accepted ehanges, and their eauses, whieh are wanted for differential analysis. 'Syphilis' as used right here frequently refers both to the 'treponematoses' whieh inc1udes yaws and treponarid. it truly is meant as a eomprehensive consultant for archaeologists and anthro pologists, and as an device of preeision for osteo-arehaeologists. it's not a handbook of pathology, even if pathologists can be attracted to this revival of the death ability of prognosis of sickness in dry bones. All reeords, written, photograph graphie and radiographie, including the preliminary 120,000 be aware document, were deposited within the division of Morbid Anatomy, Institute of Orthopaedies, London, the place they are going to be on hand for learn. Abrief introduetion to this research has been released (Haekett, 1975). i need particularly to thank the President of the Heidelberger Akade mie der Wissenschaften, and Doktor H. Gotze of Springer-Verlag, Heidelberg, for the publieation of this monograph.
