Graves from as early as 10,500 years ago to 1881 in both the United States and Mexico, unearthed from unmarked burial sites, have yielded stories of forgotten cave men, soldiers, slaves, and more. With the aid of modern methods of research and the work of artists sculpting their faces using skulls, these men and women come to life. Studies of the rest of the skeletons gives additional information regarding physical condition and/or cause of death. Photos accompany the text in this richly rewarding book about common peoples lives.
