Sažetak
The paper presents the results of the bioarchaeological analysis of the late antique (4th century AD) skeletal sample from Tekić – Treštanovačka gradina near Požega. Skeletal and dental remains of 28 individuals were examined for the possible presence of caries, alveolar bone disease, cribra orbitalia, dental enamel hypoplasia, degenerative osteoarthritis of the vertebrae and major joints, Schmorl’s nodes on vertebrae, periostitis, and bone trauma. The analysed sample is characterised by relatively high frequency of caries and alveolar bone disease, most probably as a result of poor oral health and diet mostly based on cereals. High frequencies of cribra orbitalia, dental enamel hypoplasia and periostitis suggest relatively frequent episodes of physiological stress such as starvation and infectious diseases, while the distribution and prevalence of bone fractures indicate a relatively low level of interpersonal violence in the studied community.
