Applied Osteology

Welcome to the home page of Applied Osteology, which is based in Bellingham, WA. 

If you have bones or teeth, modern or ancient, that you want identified or analyzed, this is the place to be. My specialty is the analysis of faunal remains from archaeological sites (zooarchaeology), but I also frequently work with modern skeletal material.  My particular interest is in studying marine mammal bones, with special emphasis on seals and sea lions.  However, I also work with fish bones and bird bones.

In addition to skeletal research, I also provide science education consultations tailored to the specific needs of middle school, high school, and college classes.  I am currently working with students in Alaska, Seattle, and Bellingham.

If you have, or think you have, human skeletal remains in your possession, please read "A Note About Human Remains."
