The Bioarchaeology of Continental Croatia

An analysis of human skeletal remains from the prehistoric to post-medieval periods

Mario Šlaus


This book presents the results of a decade of studying skeletal archaeological collections from continental Croatia. Results of the analyses of 786 skeletons from 21 sites are presented by site and synthesized temporally into 5 groups (Prehistoric, Antique, Early Medieval, Late Medieval, and Historic). The aim of this research is to report on skeletal data from, in this respect, an under-represented part of the world, and to summarize information pertaining to demography and specific disease classifications. From these compilations inferences on demographic trends, disease, and the quality of life from prehistoric to historic times in continental Croatia may be drawn.
