Abstract

Dental non-metric traits were used to assess the biological affinity of three excavated skeletal samples from the island of Ibiza, Spain. The dating of these groups range from c. 3rd – 12th century AD and they were all excavated within the
area of Ibiza town. The Mean Measure of Divergence (MMD) was calculated between each group and preliminary results indicate that all groups are biologically distinct and may represent different settlement waves in the islands history. Biological
continuity between the groups was not evident.
