Sažetak
During a rescue excavation in the town center of Umag, the remains of 32 individuals were discovered. The burial is dated to the 16th/17th century. The human remains with a whole range of pathologiest present were mostly commingled and covered with a thick layer of lime. The location of the burial outside of the medieval town walls close to the church of St. Rocco, the patron saint against plague, as well as the context (mass grave covered with a thick layer of lime) strongly suggest this was a burial place for plague victims. Hopefully, this hypothesis will be soon confirmed by the results of aDNA analysis currently in progress.
