Who needs an osteologist? (Installment 53)

Two upcoming presentations at the Museo de Navarra in Pamplona, Spain, are highlighted in this poster forwarded to me by Maite García-Collado:

The skeleton in the image is labeled as a "female burial of Aizpea, in Aribe." Google image searching for those keywords turns up a few photos from what is presumably a museum display at the Museo de Navarre in which the bones are arranged the same way.

Of course, if we look more closely, we can see that, at the very least, both radii are upside down and both humeri are mis-sided. The right clavicle is upside down, but sided correctly. Is there a tarsal in the right wrist?

What else do you notice? If the more eagle-eyed among you see anything else, post in the comments!

The scapula? It seems it is sided correctly, though hard to really see, but evidently, the glenoid cavity points medially and lies over humerus?
