Abstract:
The health of infants and children, who are nearly universally among the most vulnerable subgroups of a population, can be a sensitive indicator of the health of the population as a whole. Furthermore, repeated bouts of illness during infancy and childhood can have lasting effects on the individual and the group. A framework is offered for studying this topic, with a brief review of methods applicable to skeletal remains, and examples of the sensitivity and adaptive significance of this segment of the population are given for Nubia and Illinois. Harris Lines, dental enamel hypoplasia, and porotic hyperostosis are among the pathologies studied. Au(adp/abr)
