An Osteology of Some Maya Mammals

An Osteology of Some Maya Mammals

Stanley J. Olsen

ISBN 9780873651998

Publication date: 02/04/1982

The bone remains of a considerable range of vertebrate mammals have been recovered in the course of excavations at Maya archaeological sites. Many of the mammals represented in those collections are peculiar to Central America and have not been treated in osteological studies. This volume has been designed to aid in the identification of faunal remains recovered in the Maya area and is intended particularly for those archaeologists not having the large comparative mammal collections in their institutions. A number of the skeletons are figured for the first time.
