Osteological collection

Osteological collection

2494 photos in 41 sub-albums

This section contains the skeletal frameworks of different species. The photographs available here are in high resolution, multiple shots are provided for a single element and a scale is usually provided. These pictures are directly viewable on the ArchéoZooThèque (possibility of advanced zoom) or can be downloaded in JPG format for their consultation on another application.
These resources are intended to be used freely by the community of archaeozoologists for help them in their work of determination. They are in no way intended to be reused in a publication or event, unless otherwise specified by the author.
To help us develop this "virtual" collection of reference, please provide us photographs of skeletal elements from your own collections. The idea is of course to have for each species presented the most comprehensive repositories.

Drawings in vector format of skeletons in connection intended to illustrate your scientific work provided to mention their references and copyright, such information is given at the bottom of each drawing. Individuals or institutions wishing to use them in a broader context - publication, exhibition, movie, event or educational output - are invited to contact us.
They are downloadable in PDF (compatible with Adobe Illustrator and various DTP software) and PNG formats.
We try to enrich this section regularly from anatomical drawings found in publications and vectorized by Michel Coutureau and colleagues or, from your own production. To help us develop this section, don’t hesitate to send us also your drawings. You can also send us copies or references of publication offering the same type of illustration that we could vectorize well and make available to all.

"Split" views of skeletons for easy reading and representation: conservation, human traces (decarnisation, dislocation, skin removal, burns, cut into quarters), no human traces (rodents, carnivores) etc. These drawings are downloadable in PDF (compatible with Adobe Illustrator and various DTP software) and PNG formats. There are intended to be used freely by the archaeozoologists community to illustrate their work provided to mention their references and copyright, information listed at the bottom of each drawing.

25 photos in 2 sub-albums

This section contains shots from exhibitions on the theme of archaeozoology or, more broadly, the relationship between man and animal. The photographs made available here were provided by their leaders and are accompanied by a blurb recalling dates and theme of these events. Beyond highlighting these exhibitions, the idea is to preserve their memory.
We invite museums or other institutions likely to make exhibitions of its kind to contact us to deposit here a presentation and some good shots. Note that for these exhibitions, we usually give our permission for the use of resources proposed by the ArchéoZooThèque like “skeletons” drawings.
