Description (summary) 2002-09-18 aP Inside the jar we discovered a human body, belonging to a baby, of female sex (presence of earrings). The position is not fetal, the legs are open and the arms go down along the hips so it seems that the baby is sleeping. On the right and on the left ear lie small ring shaped bronze earrings. The bones, except for the skull are in a good state of preservation (we also found the fingers/fingers). Below the left foot, attached to the jar, are small salt crystals. The funerary set consisted of a pair of bronze earrings i124 and i134. No jars or bowls were found except for the jar in which the body was deposed i114. This burial may be associated with another burial that is emerging below this burial. [Input: M917AP.j]

Biological sex 2007-08-06 lr unknown [Input: R815LR.j]
Biological age 2007-08-06 lr infant [Input: R815LR.j]
Data on biological age 2007-08-06 lr infant, 5-12 months of age estimated through multiple aging techniques. The diaphyseal length of the long bones; Humerus 66mm, Ulna 85mm, radius 74mm, tibia 95mm, femur 113 mm using Hoppa 1992 suggests this is an infant of 12 months. Bone ossification places this infant within 9-12 months of age with the mandible fused (>6-9 months) while the vertebral bodies remain un-fused (<12 months) via Buikstra and Ubelaker 1994. Deciduous teeth formation estimates this infant within 5-10 months; canine at stage Crc= 5-8 months, molar 1 at stage r1/4= 5-10 months, and permanent molar 1 at Coc= 6 months via Moorees, Fanning and Hunt 1963; Smith 1991.

Pathology location 2007-08-06 lr left ulna, left fibula [Input: R815LR.j]
Pathology description 2007-08-06 lr The left ulna and fibula show signs of periostitis, an inflammation of the periosteum either through trauma or infection, with evidence of woven bone formation on the shaft that takes on a porous appearance. The inflammation is nonspecific resulting from either periostitis as the primary disease or as a secondary reaction of another disease. No other skeletal lesions where noted. In archaeological skeletal material, periosteal inflammation of the long bones forms the most common pathological condition recorded (Ortner 2003). [Input: R815LR.j]
