Abstract
Palaeodemographic analyses of the two medieval necropolises from western France are presented with a view relevant to an archaeological perspective. The comparison between the age structure of the two non-adult populations with the data originated from historical demography, standard life-tables and mortuary practices tend to underline differences in burying modes according to the age of the deceased. Other hypotheses are proposed to explain the peculiar age repartition of these two populations.
