Bone is clearly a remarkable physical material. About one quarter of the mass of bone in the living body is water. Adult bone, after removal from the body and drying, is about two-thirds inorganic crystals consisting mainly of calcium and phosphorous. The main mechanical components of bone are collagen (most of the organic component) and calcium salts (most of the inorganic component). The collagen provides toughness and flexibility, so it contributes to the tensile strength; bone’s hardness and rigidity are attributable mainly to its calcium salts, which also contribute principally to the compressive strength.

Although an understanding of history is not a prerequisite for the study of anatomy, an overview of the development of anatomy is valuable as a means of gaining a better appreciation of the discipline. Most people think that everything there is to know about anatomy must already be known; this is not so. Anatomy research is still being published.
