Sažetak
The Late Bronze Age cemetery of Poljana Križevačka 2, dated to the 13th century BC, is situated in northern Croatia. It contains cremated remains of 43 individuals. Anthropological analysis was carried out in order to determine sex and age distribution of the sample, as well as identify observed pathological changes. They were present in 22 individuals: 18 adults and 4 juveniles. These include ectocranial porosity, endocranial lesions, cribra orbitalia, periostitis, degenerative and entheseal changes, as well as dental pathologies. The majority of the pathological changes are associated with prolonged periods of inadequate diet, vitamin deficiencies, unsanitary conditions and presence of nonspecific and specific infectious diseases. This indicates low life quality for some members of the community from Poljana. Degenerative and entheseal changes, related to advanced age and mechanical stress, suggest that some individuals participated in physically demanding activities. Dental pathologies indicate low level of dental hygiene. Even though the analysed sample is relatively small, the obtained data makes a significant contribution to our knowledge about health and lifestyle of Late Bronze Age communities from northern Croatia.
