Race and Anthropology Bibliography
A reading list I made with the essentials on race and racism in the history of anthropology, particularly relating to human origins discussions in archaeology and paleoanthropology:

Reading List/ Bibliography on Commingled and Fragmentary Human Skeletal Remains
For my Masters research I worked extensively with commingled and fragmentary human and faunal skeletal remains. From this experience, and my subsequent work on publishing that data, I have come up with these key sources that I am providing here as a recommendation for all interested in reading up more on this subject, the analysis of such remains, and the affects taphonomy has on them. This is not an exhaustive list, but if you start with this list and follow the bibliographies, you'll easily find the rest.
