I can suggest you to read Preprints of the Contributions to the
Paris Congress, 2-8 September 1984: Adhesives and Consolidants.
There you can find some suggestions of the use of adhesives for
different materials. Another book handles wood problems and you
can find some solutions for elastic putty, which could be use for
bones too, I suppose:
