'Cholakov S, Boev P, 1986: Anthropological Study of an Aeneolithic Necropolis at the Town of Targovishte (Bulgaria). Anthropologie (Brno) 24, 2-3: 167-173'.
The skeletons of eleven burials from an Aeneolithic necropolis in the southern part of the town of Targovishte have been studied. A detailed metric and racial-typological analysis has been made. The pathological changes along the bones are described, paying attention particularly to the dental-maxillary apparatus. The high caries affection of the individuals studied, is pointed out, the caries frequency being 87.50 and the caries intensity — 17.39. The racial-typological analysis shows the different stages of gracilization of the Mediterranide Race — from the Protomediterranid racial type to the gracile Mediterranic Racial Type, characteristic of the Balkan Peninsula, as well as three craniums of the robust Nordic racial type, close to the Cro-magnon type, assuming that they are as a result of migratory processes from the North.
