Abstract

UBELAKER, Douglas H.. TEMPORAL TRENDS IN OLD WORLD PATTERNS OF MORBIDITY. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2000, vol.32, n.1, pp.33-40. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562000000100007.

Extensive research by many investigators with archeologically recovered human remains in the Americas indicates pre-Columbian temporal patterns of increased morbidity in many areas. Although dietary factors may also be involved, much of this pattern can be explained by temporal shifts in population density and settlement pattern. This paper explores the existing published evidence for comparable patterns in the Old Word. Analysis includes newly acquired data from northeastern Hungary, spanning several thousand years

Keywords : Morbidity; Old World; temporal patterns; human skeletons.
