Anthropological data, pit sanctuary, Iron Age


Current study analizes the anthropological material from two pit sanctuaries, excavated in the Thrace region, one, near the town Svilengrad and second, by the village Malko Tranovo. Complexes, which contain human remains are dated in the 8th – 6th c. BC in the site of Svilengrad and 5th c. BC in that from Malko Tranovo. Classical methods of identification of age, sex and anthropological features are used. By comparison with published finds of paleopathological changes and their interpretation, a recognition is achieved of such conditions on studied material.

Achieved anthropological features are correlated to the field situation of studied skeletal remains, and two groups are identified, based on the entirety of the human skeleton.
