A fundamental component of the study of worked osseous objects is the identification of the raw materials chosen to make them. In archaeological contexts many objects become degraded to the point where identification is very difficult and the way in which these materials decay during burial and upon excavation can vary greatly. Correct identification is crucial to the investigation of objects, their conservation and future curation. Above all, understanding raw material selection aids our understanding of human-animal interaction in the past both on pragmatic and symbolic levels since the choices made by artisans vary by cultural tradition as well as availability. The 20 papers presented here explore a wealth of information pertaining to the use of osseous materials over the long period of human craftsmanship and tool manufacture by exploring several key themes: * Raw material selection and curation within tool types * Social aspects of raw material selection * New methods of materials identification It is demonstrated that the issue of raw material identification has numerous implications for conservation work, reproduction of objects, the physical characteristics of the tool or ornament, availability of raw materials, the materials chosen for procurement and the cultural reasons that lie behind the choice of raw materials from particular species and skeletal elements to produce planned tool and ornament types. Together, these papers emphasize the need for confident and correct materials identification and demonstrate that functionality is by no means the only, nor necessarily the most important, factor in the selection of osseous raw materials for the fabrication of tools and other cultural objects

    I think picking the right template depends on the design and also its functionality. For more advanced website builders (such as WordPress), each template may have difference functions, so it's more important to pick the right template for WordPress. But for drag and drop builders such as GoDaddy, it's less important as it is the platform that powers the function of the websites, and not the template.

    I would recommend taking a look at our discussions about them (the links to the discussions are included in the chart above) and visiting their actual websites to get a sense of who they are. Then signing up to trial / free accounts and invest a bit of time to test which website builder you are most comfortable with.

      Any one of the website builders above will allow you to upload audio files so your web visitors can download them. You can also create a simple biography or "about me" page with any one of them.

    I used a local printer (who print a lot of books so I could check the quality) and found them to be excellent. Apparently a lot of publishers get books printed in Spain and it can be cheaper but I preferred to stick with who I knew. Mine are non fiction and I've found that people prefer to buy the paperbacks, even my Create Space purchases tend to be double that of my ebooks.The more you get printed, the smaller the unit cost per book, I got 2000 of my second book last Sept and have about 600 left which I'm pretty confident will go before this Christmas. Having them there certainly makes you get out and market your books. I always carry a box of them in the car boot too Р just in case.
