'Jambor J, 1988: Changes in Bones of Prehistoric Populations Caused by Environmental Influence. Anthropologie (Brno) 26, 1: 55-60'.
A model of the interaction of bones and environment has been worked out and with the help of the model the content of a number of elements in connection with degree of contamination was tested. From the dependence thus found it follows that the ageing of bones takes place very unevenly. From the proportional presence of some elements, however, we can determine the degree of contamination of each sample, either with soluble or with insoluble components of the environment, this facilitating of the interpretation of the results. One of the important conclusions is the importance of the reproducible selection of all samples.
