Abstract

In this work, osteological and paleopathological analyses are combined with liquid-chromatography mass

(Valdaro, 7th-8th cent. AD). We estimated individual sex by exploiting sexual differences in enamel-bounded

and through a partial digestion of small enamel chunks for the remaining 26 samples. Both protocols were

AMELY). In addition, low-mineralized tooth germs were analysed and they provided reliable information on the

significantly different from a random sample with an equal frequency of males and females. Cribra cranii and

endocranial lesion occurrence showed an association with sex, with higher frequencies in male individuals.
