Analiza antropologică a unor schelete descoperite în necropola birituală de la Polocin – Islaz, secolul IV d. Hr. (judeţul Vaslui, România).

  • Subiect: „In the present paper we are analyzing some skeletal remains of human origin discovered in the biritual necropolis from Polocin-Islaz, Vaslui district (IVth century A.D., Sântana de Mureş Culture). The preservation status of skeletons is satisfactory. From a total of nine skeletons, seven are from inhumation tombs and only two are from incineration tombs. Four skeletons were males, two were women and three were children. Regarding the cremated remains, we have two different situations. The remains belonging to the child (grave no. 79) indicate incomplete burning, more or less uniform, in „green” state, at medium and high temperatures. According to the R.G.B. scale, the burning temperature degree is situated in the 500-900°C interval. The fragmentation degree is medium to high and the bony wall cracking indicate an incinerated bone in fresh state at high temperature. The remains that belonged to the adult female show a non-uniform, incomplete burning at low temperature (200-500°C interval). The fragmentation degree is very low and the skeleton is extremely incomplete. The cracks from the postcranial remains, positioned longitudinal on the axe of the bone are very superficial. The transverse diaphyseal cracks, the jagged metaphyseal cracks and the reticular epiphyses cracks are missing, as well as the „white plating” stage, the contortion, deformation and warping. Referring to skeletons from înhumations graves (graves no. 29 and 73-78), results on osteopathies and enthesopathies reported, in correlation with paleodemographic data, provides precious information on the life style of those times, on the environment in which this extinct community held their daily activities. Paleodemographic data refers to the total number of 58 individuals were anthropological analyzed so far in the necropolis of Polocin-Islaz. Thus, sex ratio in this complete osteological sample from Polocin-Islaz indicates a higher number of male skeletons, comparatively with the female ones. More than half of the analysed subjects did not survive after adolescence. The maximum risk of mortality in this sample occurs during childhood (0-14 years). Life expectancy at birth is of 19,75 years. For individuals older than 20 years, life expectancy after this age, calculated separately on sexes, was of 15,85 years in men and of 11,17 years in women.”
