'Repetto E, Canci A, Tarli SMB, 1988: Skeletal Indicators of Health Conditions in the Bronze Age Sample from Toppo Daguzzo (Basilicata, Southern Italy). Anthropologie (Brno) 26, 3: 173-182'.
 
Abstract
The combined use of various skeletal indicators of stress (dental disease, enamel defects, cribra orbitalia, Harris lines, adult stature reduction, skeletal evidence of disease and trauma) in a Bronze Age sample from Southern Italy allowed an evaluation of the general health status. The results point to conditions of good nutritional status, although with mediocre health conditions. This kind of integrated approach can significantly contribute to reconstructing the way of life of past human population, when the information is combined with archaeological and palaeoenvironmental data.
