Sažetak
The purpose of this article is to synthesize bioarcheological data from the late Antique Štrbinci skeletal series and present it by grave unit and individual skeleton, and to compare the bioarchaeological characteristics of this sample with the Antique sample from the Zadar – Relja site. Due to their different geographical location, climate and ecological settings, significant differences in life conditions and quality of life between these two samples can be expected. To determine if these environmental factors had any effect on the life conditions of these populations a detailed anthropological analysis was conducted. All skeletons were analysed for sex, age, dental pathologies, subadult stress indicators, non-specific infectious diseases, osteoarthritis, Schmorl’ s nodes and trauma. Data collected from this study demonstrated that, with the exception of one skeletal indicator of dental disease (caries), one skeletal indicator of subadult stress (the active form of cribra orbitalia) and one skeletal indicator of physical activity (Schmorl’ s nodes), no significant differences in quality of life are present between individuals who inhabited Štrbinci and individuals who inhabited Zadar during the late Antique period. The results of this research strongly suggest similar levels of stress between the two analysed populations which were most probably the result of similar social and economical circumstances.
