Sažetak
The effects of climate change on the health of late antique and early medieval populations from the eastern Adriatic coast Climate change is not a new phenomenon. Our planet's climate has been constantly changing throughout history. Seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat have been recorded in the last 650, 000 years. New studies show that in our recent past there were so called mini ice age periods. One, from the 13th to 19th century AD, the other in the 6th and 7th century AD. Human population can adapt to abrupt climate changes, but at a price. With changes in climate, come changes in economy, agriculture, environment and in human health. The purpose of this study was to determine if the 6th and 7th century little ice age raised frequencies of two non-specific markers of subadult stress – cribra orbitalia (CO) and linear enamel hypoplasia (LEH) - in the early medieval populations from the eastern Adriatic coast. To do so, a comparative analysis between the late antique (2. – 5. c. AD) and early medieval (6. – 9. c. AD) series was conducted. The results show that adults from EM series exhibit significantly higher rates of CO than adults from LA series. Subadults also exhibit higher CO rates in the EM series, but without statistical significance. LEH values are almost identical in both samples. Higher rates of CO in the EM series, especially in adults, suggest that little ice age, among other contributors such as increased parasite loads and higher frequencies of acute and chronic infectious diseases, caused deterioration of human health in the early medieval period. Analysis by sex suggest that this deterioration was not uniform and that females, as is evident by their significantly higher frequency of the co- ocurence of CO and LEH were more susceptible to subadult stress than males.
