Reconstruction of the main demographic indices Population exhumed from the mediaeval cemetery of Lozova (XIVth-XVth centuries)

Abstract. The scope of the present study was the demographic reconstitution of the population exhumed in the years 2010-2011 from the mediaeval cemetery of Lozova (Străşeni district, Republic of Moldova), belonging to the XIVth–XVth centuries. More than that, the demographic data obtained for the skeletal series of Lozova (51 skeletons) were compared with the data of other two synchronous mediaeval communities, namely with the human osteological material (32 skeletons) exhumed at Brăila – “Sf. Arhanghel Mihail” Church (XVth century) and with the human osteological material (101 skeletons) exhumed from the mediaeval cemetery of Hudum – Botoşani (XIIIth–XVth centuries).
