Injury recidivism is a continuing health problem in the modern clinical setting, and has been part of the medical literature for some time. However, it has been largely absent from the forensic and bioarchaeological literature, despite the fact that we work closely with skeletal remains, and in many cases, skeletal trauma. This volume seeks to close this gap by exploring role that injury recidivism and accumulative trauma plays in bioarchaeological and forensic contexts by providing case examples from prehistoric, historic, and modern settings. These case studies highlight both the avenues through which injury recidivism can be studied and analyzed in skeletal remains, as well as the limitations in studying injury recidivism in deceased populations.
