Sažetak
The purpose of this study was to get a better insight on life-conditions in Late Antiquity. In order to do so, skeletal sample from the Late Antique Cibalae was anthropologically analysed to determine subadult mortality rate, average life span for males and females, and the presence and frequency of indicators of subadult stress. Pathologies indicative of subadult stress include: the presence of cribra orbitalia, linear enamel hypoplasia, and non-specific infectious disease (periostitis). Indicators of subadult stress proved to be very useful when trying to assess health and life quality of an archaeological population. The results were then compared to the previously studied skeletal series from Certissia. By doing so we got information on different living conditions in a Late Antique village and city. Both sites are dated to the same period and are geographically close to one another, the only difference being in the nature of the settlements. Certissia is a rural settlement, while Cibalae are an urban centre. Since both sites belong to the same geographical region and chronological period, little difference is expected between biological characteristics of the two populations. Possible differences might be the result of different life- styles of the rural and urban populations.
