We dedicate this resource to the memory of Donald J. Ortner (1938-2012), former Director of the National Museum of Natural History and faculty within the Department of Anthropology at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. and Honorary Visiting Professor at the University of Bradford. Don was a longstanding friend and colleague to many and was an advisor to the project at its inception. He co-authored the major publication Identification of Pathological Conditions in Human Skeletal Remains which remains a standard text on the subject. Various specimens mentioned within the book came from collections curated both at the University Bradford and the Royal College of Surgeons that have been digitised and are made available as part of this project.
