Organization of the Skeleton The bones of the body are categorized  into two groups: the axial skeleton and  the appendicular skeleton. The bones  of the axial skeleton revolve around the  vertical axis of the skeleton, while the  bones of the appendicular skeleton  make up the limbs that have been  appended to the axial skeleton. A list of  the bones in the axial and appendicular  skeletons is given in Tables 1 and 2,  respectively. Major bones of both  skeletons are shown in Figure 1.
