Abstract

The anthropological information about past populations allows interpreting the past better and helps to understand biological aspects of the present populations. In this study, the demographics of two Roman archaeological populations from
Ibiza are presented. Standard osteological methods are used to assess the populations’ biological profile. Sex and age assessment, stature and pathologies and traumatic lesions are reported. The analysis of cranial, postcranial and dental non-metrics traits skeleton is also undertaken. Overall, this provides valuable
information about the Roman population from 1st to 7th centuries in the island.
