Within WP5 (Dialogue with science), Ilija Mikić performed research on human osteological material from Viminacium. He examined several dozens of skeletnos from certain parts of different Viminacium cemeteries and discovered several rather interesting things. One of them was skull trepanning. Every time when it was possible, in accordance with the state of preservation of osteological material, he attempted to measure height and corporal mass (weight) of the deceased. Some of the data were used as we prepared the cremation experiment.
The data were published within several papers, all of them attached here.
These and the remaining data shall represent parts of Ilija's doctoral thesis, currently under preparation.
