Abstract
The analysis of a sample of subadult skeletons from two medieval cemeteries demonstrates the usefulness of this material in the study of bone growth and development. These series were utilised in determining the pattern of age-related changes in the lenght, width and cortical thickness of the femur and tibia. It was found that while growth in lenght as well as in total width remains fairly well-maintained, cortical thickness and other derivative variables (cortical index and percent cortical area) show growth curves which reflect excessive endosteal resorption.
