'Strouhal E, 1992: Anthropology of the Christian Population at Sayala (Egyptian Nubia, 6th-11th century A.D.): Preliminary Report. Anthropologie (Brno) 30, 1: 85-87'.
From the three separated cemeteries of the Christian period at Sayala, remains of 160 individuals were unearthed by the Austrian Nubian mission. They were studied from the demographic, morphologic and palaeopathological views. The vital statistics were found to have been unfavourable. In the anthropometric and anthroposcopic features there was a clear-cut sexual dimorphism but only slight difference between people buried in the individual cemeteries. Among numerous pathological findings, some rare diagnoses as spinal tuberculosis, primary carcinoma or metastatic carcinoma were revealed.
