'Sansilbano-Collilieux M, 2000: The Non-Adults of the Necropolis of the Old Bishop's Palace of Poitiers (4th Century) and Saint-Martin-de-Cognac (7th-15th Centuries) in France. Palaeodemography and Funerary Practices. Anthropologie (Brno) 38, 1: 83-100'.
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.
