'Drozdová E, Brzobohatá K, Fialová D, Boberová K, 2018: ANTHROPOLOGICAL PROSPECTION OF OSSUARY SITUATED IN SAINT JAMES CHURCH IN BRNO, CZECH REPUBLIC. Anthropologie (Brno) 56, 2: 115-128'.
The anthropological research of the ossuary in the Church of St. James in Brno took place between the years 2011 and 2012. The research was connected with the reconstruction of the ossuary and its opening to the public. As it was to be cleared up and re-arranged, the aim of this research was to rescue and examine the original human skeletons buried in the church. It was impossible to examine all skeletal remains due to capacity and technical limitations, therefore only a localized probe in the crypt and subsequent laboratory research could be carried out. During 14 days of field research eight cubic meters of skeletal remains were anthropologically examined, minimal and maximal number of individuals was calculated, preservation of skeletal remains was described as well as the frame contents of a sample.
