Abstract:
Investigates the possibility of female infanticide during the Roman period in Britain by identifying the sex of some infant skeletons using ancient DNA (aDNA) techniques. Of thirty-one individuals sampled, sex identification was successful in thirteen, of which nine were males and four females. These results are discussed in the light of previous work on DNA-based seeking of infant burials.
