Within every bone is a story, the hidden echo of a past life. Bones bear the traces of the life experience of an individual, a community, a people. They help us reconstruct dramatic events, and even reveal the face of one of our ancestors. At the University of Siena, anthropologist and anatomical illustrator Stefano Ricci Cortili devotes his life to this special kind of archaeological research. The knowledge he has gained brings to light secrets hidden within bones.
