At the End of Great Moravia

Details

This monograph summarizes the first anthropological survey of human skeletons excavated at the 2nd church cemetery in Pohansko-Břeclav (Czech Republic). The cemetery was discovered in 2006 in a north-eastern suburb of Pohansko and represents one of the key pieces of evidence about changes in human society at the end of the Great Moravian Empire (9th-10th century), when Early Medieval societies transformed into a new political organization. The monograph provides a summary of the preservation, paleodemographic assessments and paleopathology of the adult and non-adult skeletons with respect to new developments in techniques for assessing age at death, sex, stature and body mass from the Early Medieval skeletal material. Also provided are detailed preservation and osteometric data for further application in bioarchaeology, skeletal anthropology and archaeology.
