Ancient Human Bone Microstructure in Medieval England: Comparisons between Two Socio-Economic Groups

Miszkiewicz, Justyna; Mahoney, Patrick


Understanding the links between bone microstructure and human lifestyle is critical for clinical and anthropological research into skeletal growth and adaptation. The present study is the first to report correspondence between socio-economic status and variation in bone microstructure in ancient humans. Products of femoral cortical remodeling were assessed using histological methods in a large human medieval sample (N = 450) which represented two distinct socio-economic groups.
