Figure 5

Mercury measured along femur and humerus. a: Hg measured on compact bone samples taken along the posterior of femur. X-axis in cm, zero is at the top of caput femoris. b: Hg measured on compact bone samples taken along the backside of humerus. X-axis in cm, zero is at the top of caput humeri. The last sample in the femur of AG93 also included small amounts of trabecular tissue. The error bars represent ± 2 standard deviations of the total analytical uncertainty.
