Occasional archaeological human skeletal remains from Läänemaa, Western Estonia

Raili Allmäe

Abstract


During archaeological excavations in 2012 human skeletal remains were recovered from two sites in Läänemaa: four 16th–17th centuries skeletons from Ehte Street in the town of Haapsalu and two Late Iron Age (12th–13th cc.) skeletons from the Maidla grave-field. The skeletal data from Läänemaa are scanty, thus anthropological analyses of these occasionally found remains were conducted and some characteristics of body build were calculated.
