Effects of Aging on Bone

Hi there

I was wondering if someone could help me out, with a very brief
description of how the cortical material in bones changes as a person
ages? (the histological changes in rib cortical tissue).  I understand it
is used with or instead of the morphological changes at the sternal ends
of the rib for forensic purposes etc.  I've scraped up a couple of papers
on it, but it seems pretty cryptic to me (this isn't my area) and not very
specific.

Perhaps someone could e-mail me a quick explaination (if such a thing
exists?)  Many thanks
