'Ubelaker DH, Pap I, Alcantara-Russell K, 2011: Skeletal evidence for morbidity and mortality in samples from northeastern Hungary dating from the 10th century AD. Anthropologie (Brno) 49, 2: 171-183'.
In 1993, the first and second authors initiated a project to document temporal trends in the skeletal evidence for morbidity and mortality revealed through study of archeologically recovered human skeletons from northeastern Hungary. This publication focuses on results obtained from the examination of 121 individuals (78 adults and 43 immature individuals) dating from the 10th century and recovered from the site of Tiszafüred-Nagykenderföldek. These data are compared with those previously published in this project dating from the Neolithic, Copper Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age and the (Early) Árpádian Age, all from northeastern Hungary. Broadly, long-term trends across these ages include increased periosteal lesions, dental hypoplasia in permanent teeth, trauma and antemortem tooth loss, which could be related to correspondingly increased life expectancy. Notably, results suggest that temporal change within these populations was minimal, straying from the pattern of increased morbidity and mortality following sedentism found in the Americas.
