The Demographic Profile of the Man Bac Cemetery Sample

Domett, Kathryn M; Oxenham, Marc


The chief aims of this chapter are to describe the Man Bac human skeletal sample in terms of its sex and age-at-death distributions. Moreover, the preservation of the sample will be discussed in the context of a demographic reconstruction of the past population, which will include a range of measures of fertility. Inferences regarding the demographic �health� of the population will be made with reference to major social and behavioural changes seen in the region some 3,500 years ago.
