The possibility of smaller osteons in the cortical bone of Late Pleistocene human populations begs the question of how these histological features vary within individual skeletons among and between populations. The distributional characteristics of total osteon area (On.Ar) and Haversian canal area (H.Ar) are explored using data from three samples of historically known individuals: ribs and femora from eighteenth-century Huguenots in England (Spitalfields, n = 20), ribs and femora from… CONTINUE READING
